Jake Balsiger had the button. He raised to 1.6 million to kick off the action. Greg Merson reraised to 5.2 million, reraising for the second hand in a row. Jesse Sylvia paused in the big blind to study, then put in a four-bet to 10.6 million. This was the first cold four-bet seen during three-handed play tonight.
Balsiger folded his hand from the button, then Merson also gave it up, and Sylvia's group of supporters erupted in cheers. One of them even had a trumpet he was playing as the others pounded their feet on the floor and slapped their hands together.
