Pat Knoll open-shoved from under the gun for 11,000 and Nancy Martin reshipped from middle position to isolate. The rest of the table released and they were off to the races.
Martin was ahead with her pair of tens and the flop changed nothing. Knoll added a tiny gutshot Broadway draw on the and Martin did not want to hit a set. Knoll paired her jack on the river for her double up and Martin sent most of her stack across the table.
A few hands later, the short-stacked Martin three-bet shoved after a Sheree Bykofsky open and Bykofsky reluctantly called.
Bykofsky did not need to fear and held the dominant hand then improved on the flop. Martin was drawing thin but picked up a flush draw on the turn. Despite some friendly encouragement, the dealer put the on the river to send Martin out.
