Christopher Kruk, Paul Newey and Steve O'Dwyer started off with three-handed play at their respective table. O'Dwyer opened from the button to 3,000, getting calls from Kruk in the small blind and Newey in the big blind. All players checked the flop. Kruk led out 6,500 on the turn, Newey folded, O'Dwyer raised to 20,000, and Kruk called.
Kruk checked the river to O'Dwyer, who pondered for a while before checking behind. Kruk showed for kings and tens, and O'Dwyer slid his hand in the muck.
