Hand #18 - Chris Vandeursen raises from middle position to 50,000, and Robert Pyne calls right behind him. The flop comes A107, Vandeursen checks, Pyne bets 73,000, and Vandeursen check-raises to 200,000. Pyne calls.
The turn is the 9, Vandeursen moves all in for 391,000, and Pyne calls with A9 (two pair, aces and nines). But Vandeursen turns over 1010 for a set of tens.
