Hand #169: Eric Shanks raised to 205,000 and Jeff Blenkarn in the small blind as well as Mike Kachan in the big blind called. The flop got checked to Shanks and he made a continuation bet of 200,000. Blenkarn moved all in and both opponents folded. "I should have checked," said Shanks.
Hand #170: Benklarn limped from the button, Kachan raised to 255,000 in the small blind and Shanks folded from the big blind. Blenkarn reached for chips, double checked his cards again and made the call. The two players headed to the flop and Kachan immediately bet 175,000.
Benklarn checked the board again, looked at his opponent and asked "Why so much?" before mucking his cards.
Hand #171: Shanks moved all in out of the small blind. Blenkarn took about two minutes before he released the cards.
