Hand #23: Leif Force raised from the hijack to 350,000 and Dan Sindelar called from the big blind. The flop came down {9-Spades}{K-Spades}{Q-Clubs} and Sindelar check-folded when Force bet 350,000.

Hand #24: Andoni Larrabe raised to 325,000 from early position and both blinds called. The flop came down {A-Spades}{4-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} and the action was checked to Larrabe who bet 375,000. Dan Sindelar check-raised to 925,000, Iaron Lightbourne folded and Larrabe made the call.

The turn was the {4-Diamonds} and both players checked. On the river, the {J-Spades}, Sindelar bet 1,925,000 and Larrabe quickly folded his cards.

Hand #25: Thomas Sarra Jr raised to 350,000 from the cutoff and he took down this pot.

Hand #26: Sarra raised to 355,000 from the hijack and the action folded to Andoni Larrabe in the big blind. "How much do you have?" Larrabe asked Sarra, who responded he had a little over four million.

"All in," Larrabe then announced.

"All in?" Sarra questioned his opponent. "That's a big bet, a very big bet. I need to think about this one," Sarra continued.

After a brief pause Sarra continued thinking out loud and said, "That's a really big bet, why would you do that?"

Another 10 seconds went by and then Sarra called.

Sarra: {A-Clubs}{10-Hearts}
Larrabe: {8-Spades}{8-Diamonds}

"Y'all are crazy!" Leif Force yelled in excitement.

"Holy s***!" Oscar Kemps added.

Everyone at the table started laughing, but Sarra was indeed all in for his tournament life.

The board ran out {Q-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} and Sarra found himself a very big double-up.

"Grande cojones!" Kemps yelled as Sarra raked in this big, "Big hairy balls!" the Dutchman continued as Larrabe shook his head in disbelief. The Spaniard who started the day with a very big stack is now among the shorter ones at this table.
