The eight remaining players in this year's $1,500 No Limit Hold'em Six Handed event have been playing small-ball since we've returned for this pre-dinner session, but we've managed to pick up a few flops here and there for you.

In the next hand, Spinella raised to 41,000 from the cutoff; this time, Geffrey Klein called out of the big blind, but he also check-folded after Spinella's bet of 70,000 after the flop of .
We then picked up the same scenario next door on table 280, with George Jalkotzy raising to 43,000 from the cutoff before Jeffrey Papola calling out of the big blind to see a flop of , before Papola check-folded to Jalkotzy's bet of 50,000.
With only one elimination to go until the final table, small wonder then that the players are now playing small ball.
