Everyone Starting Slow, Except For Eriquezzo

Event 1 (Day 2)
Level 24 (10,000/20,000/3,000)
Total Entries: 332
Players Remaining: 10
Chip Average: 660,000
Ryan Eriquezzo (New Haven, CT)
The action has started slowly here at the Card Player Poker Tour $100,000 GTD Event 1 Final Table, as players are feeling each other and we don't expect the action to be "forced" as players are all somewhat deep with the chip average holding close to 30 big blinds.

Most of the hands have been won pre-flop, either with raises or three-bet shoves from the short stacks with no one chipping up or down significantly through the first 20 minutes of play.

One player who is the exception to that is Ryan Eriquezzo, who just got a full double against Doug Lyford.

The action was picked up pre-flop with Lyford raising from the cutoff and Eriquezzo, to his immediate left, would move all-in for just over 350,000 from the button and get snap called.

It was a flip, as Eriquezzo held [6d][6c] and Lyford held [Ah][Ks].

Lyford would shake his head after the [8d][7c][2d] flop, as he had just two more cards to hit his pair and the outlook didn't look great.

It looked even worse after the turn, as he'd be drawing dead as Eriquezzo hit his set with the [6s].

The meaningless river would fall and Lyford would be cutting out nearly half of his stack and sending it to his left, bumping Eriquezzo up and over the chip average with 725,000.

Lyford is now playing just over 10 big blinds.
