9.45pm: Details. Give me details.
The details of that big hand at the end of the level: Marc Goodwin raised to 250,000 pre-flop and Carter Phillips three-bet to 700,000. Goodwin called and things were eerily familiar. The board came 98K and Phillips bet 800,000, which Goodwin called. The turn was 9 and this time they checked. And when Phillips bet 1,400,000 on the 6 river, Goodwin got out of the way.

That is the end of that and we go into level 30 after 10 minutes elsewhere.
