On just the second hand of hand-for-hand play, Aaron Massey opened the button for 7,500. The small blind called. The big blind three-bet to 21,000. It was back on Massey and he four-bet an unknown amount. The small blind folded. The big blind shoved for about 75,000 and Massey called. The big blind was at risk.
