Hand #161: Jeff Blenkarn on the button and Eric Shanks out of the big blind were all in preflop and Shanks was at risk for 1,100,000.
The flop delivered one of the two over cards for Shanks and Blenkarn had only one out left after the turn. The river saw Shanks double up and both exchanged the roles.
Hand #162: Mike Kachan raised to 215,000 from the button and Blenkarn moved all in for 1,350,000 out of the big blind. It was no snap call but Kachan eventually announced the call and then sighed when he saw the cards of his opponent.
The flop reduced the odds of an elimination dramatically and Blenkarn locked up the hand with the turn. The meaningless river completed the board.
