We've been seeing a lot of preflop aggression over the first 70 minutes of this final table, as showcased in the following three hands:
Scott Baumstein raised to 52,000 from the hijack only to find Jeffrey Gross three-bet to 125,000 from the button. Action folded back around to Baumstein who also tossed his cards into the muck.
The next hand, Todd Terry raised to 50,000 from under the gun. Action folded all the way around to Nicolas Fierrogottner who made it 145,000 to go. Terry quickly mucked his cards and Fierrogottner scooped the pot.
The following hand, Mark Radoja made it 48,000 from early position. He was called by NIkita Lebedev in the small blind. Todd Terry decided to three-bet the action to 175,000 from the big blind and both Radoja and Lebedev threw their hands away.
The players seem to be choosing their spots to take a flop very carefully during this tournament and it will be interesting to see how play develops once we finally start to see some more flops.
