An early-position player opened for 3,000 and was called by a player in middle position and the player on the button. Randal Flowers three-bet to 10,200 from the big blind. The early-position player quickly raised to 40,000, which was enough to put Flowers all in. The other two players folded and action was back on Flowers, who fell deep into the tank.
"I was hoping you'd fold..." Flowers said. Flowers took a deep breath - clearly agonized over the decision. He eventually mucked two queens face up, much to the surprise of the table.
"Wow," is all one of his table-mates could say. Flowers' opponent mucked without showing.
Flowers is down to his last 32,000 as we reach the end of Day 2b.
