With blinds of 200/400, Alex Foxen raised to 900 on the button and Joseph Marzilli called.

The flop was 9h7d3d and Marzilli checked. Foxen bet 900 and Marzilli called. The turn was the 8h and both players checked.

The river was the Td and Marzilli bet 1,100. Foxen raised to 3,100 and Marzilli immediately sighed and picked up his hand off the table.

“I don’t do this very often,” said Marzilli. “I want you to know that.”

Marzilli took a few moments and folded 7x6x, good for a straight, face-up.

Foxen flashed the 3c as he dragged the pot. Foxen took a slight lead in what was still their first match.

Alex Foxen – 14,000
Joseph Marzilli – 1,000
