Back and Forth

There hasn't been a lot of action during the last few hands. The players have been playing 88 hands so far in this long heads-up match.

In hand 77, on a     flop, Dietrich Fast bets 585,000, and John Gale raises enough to put him all in. Fast snap-folds and drops to 3,400,000.

The next few hands are a succession of raise-and-folds preflop, but Fast takes a lot of time to play those small pots. In hand 85, Gale even calls the clock on Fast preflop soon after the players got their cards. This triggers a small discussion between the two players.

There still no action going on until hand 88, when Fast opens to 260,000 and Gale calls to see a     flop. Both check and the turn is the  . Gale bets 400,000. Fast calls. On the   river, Gale fires 850,000 and gets a quick call from Fast. But Fast mucks even quicker when he sees Gale's    for two pairs.

Fast has 3,300,000.
Gale leads with 7,400,000.
