With 100 players remaining and action on the first round of hand-for-hand play, John Iddaraga opened the button with a raise to 12,000. The small blind got out of the way and action was on Barry Hutter in the big blind. He three-bet 36,000 and Iddaraga went into the tank. He called and the pair saw a flop.

Flop: Qh6s4h — Hutter checked. It was on Iddaraga and he shoved for just over 100,000. Hutter, who had Iddaraga easily covered, reluctantly called.
