Players are back from break and most of them are fed. There may have been a degen or two grinding in the pits for the last hour. There are nine tables in action with eight of them down in the lower seating area.

Scott Dobbs opened, another player raised to 3,000, Cody Stanford called, a fourth player called and so did Dobbs. The flop came       and action checked all the way around. The turn came  , followed by a second round of checks and the river came  .

Dobbs bet 5,300, only Stanford called and Dobbs tabled    . The dealer announced a full house and Stanford looked perplexed.

"I thought that was weird," he said shaking his head. "Nice hand."

Dobbs - 105,000
Stanford - 70,000

We counted Maurice Hawkins at 140,000 before the break and he must have had a series of unfortunate events in the first couple of hands back from break. We saw him and Kody Lyons each put 20,000 in preflop to see      . Lyons was first to act and put out enough 25,000 chips to put Hawkins all in. 

Hawkins mucked and Lyons tabled his hand emphatically, slapping the table with force to show    .

Lyons - 117,000
Hawkins - 34,000

David Yingling, Roland Israelashvili and a third player went to a raised flop. All the money went in on a flop that hit everybody. Details are murky but Yingling heldpocket aces, Israelashvili     and third player with pocket fours were on a massive draw that didn't hit.

Yingling rocketed up to 250,000 after the hand and leads the field.

Anthony Allison and Preston McEwen went to a raised flop of       with two other players. Marty Martin bet 3,500, Allison raised to 10,000 and McEwen folded. Martin thought for a short bit before surrendering the pot to Allison.

He then got in pot with Tawab Hassam where Allison paired his ace on the flop and got paid on three streets of betting. Allison moved from around 30,000 to 60,000 within two hands.
