Ian Marmion is up and down like the proverbial yo-yo. He finished yesterday second in chips and has not moved out of the top spots. In fact just before dinner Marmion was our chip leader before Sam El Sayed found aces to crack his pocket kings. Here is Marmion resuming business after the break.
Sam El Sayed bets 6,500 from first position and Marmion three-bets to 20,000 one seat to his left. Play folds around to Jessy Marillaud in the small blind and he stares deep into the eyes of Marmion before four-betting to 46,000. The big blind folds, El Sayed folds but Marmion was in no mood to follow the crowd, instead he moved two 5k stacks into the middle representing a five-bet of 100,000 and Marillaud mucked instantly.
"What did you guys have for dinner? What has happened to you guys?" Said El Sayed.
Marmion - 335,000
Marillaud - 200,000
El Sayed - 110,000
