Ralph Massey moved all in from middle position for 12,500, the player in the hijack called, and the player in the small blind called. Any further betting would create a side pot.

Both players checked to the river on a board of Js3h2c10d6c, and all three turned over their cards:

Ralph Massey:  9h9c  (pair of nines)
Small Blind:  8h8c  (pair of eights)
Hijack:  Ad8d  (ace high)

Massey won the entire pot with his pocket nines to triple up in chips.

Ralph Massey  –  40,500  (27 bb)

Action is scheduled to continue tonight until the end of Level 10, around 11:20 pm.
