Tuthill Doubles Opponent

• Level 10: 600-1,200, 200 ante

David Tuthill was under the gun and raised the action to 2,600. Action folded around the table to a late position player who moved all in for his last 25,100. Hands hit the muck around the table until it was back on Tuthill. He called and the two hands were turned on their backs.

Tuthill: {10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}
Opponent: {A-Spades}{J-Spades}

Tuthill stood from the table and his rail crowded the table. The dealer produced a flop of {8-Spades}{K-Spades}{3-Spades}, eliciting an immediate response from Tuthill.

"Flush!" he yelled while laughing, pointing out that his opponent had flopped an ace-high flush. The board completed with the {4-Spades} and the {2-Hearts}, ensuring that Tuthill would ship the chips across the table. He's now down to about 108,000.

Conrad Loses One

• Level 10: 600-1,200, 200 ante

An early positioned player opened to 2,500 and the player on the button called. Rep Porter came along from the small blind and action was on Chris Conrad in the big blind. He peeked at his cards and a moment later announced a three-bet to 8,800. The original raiser called while the button and Porter ditched their hands.

The flop came {7-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{4-Spades} and Conrad checked. His opponent took this chance to lead for 8,200. Conrad called and the {5-Hearts} paired the board on the turn. Two checks allowed the {Q-Diamonds} to finish off the board where both players checked again.

Conrad's opponent showed {A-Spades}{Q-Hearts} for queens and fives with an ace - enough to take down the pot. With this hit, Conrad is down to about 32,000.
