The flop had come down , and there were a ton of bets on the table. Stein had a pink T5,000 chip in front that we later figured out was a bet of around 3,500. Drew Woodke had raised it up to 7,500, and Peter Ippolito had put out a massive bet that was essentially an all in. Stein was in the tank when we arrived, and he eventually released his hand. Action was on Woodke now, and after about 30 seconds of thought, he slid the rest of his chips forward for the call.

After that hand, Ippolito is one of our chip leaders, with 57,000.
