Blinds: 400/800
Ante: 100

A player in early position raises to 2,200.  Eric Siegel calls in the small blind, and Peter Sennon shoves all in from the big blind.  The original raiser goes into the tank, and after nearly four minutes, calls the all in bet.  Siegel folds. 

Sennon: [jc][jh]
Opponent: [9c][9h]

The board runs out [kh][6h][6c][4h][6d].  Sennon will take the pot with his higher full house.

Facing Two All-In Shoves, The Button is in the Tank
Blinds: 400/800
Ante: 100

On a board reading [ac][10d][7d][8h], a player in the big blind shoves all in.  Samuel Taylor also shoves all in for less in the cutoff.  The player on the button goes into the tank.  After two minutes of thinking, and apologizing to his tablemates, the player folds. 

Taylor: [as][4d] (pair of aces)
Big Blind: [10h][6h] (pair of tens, gutshot straight draw)

The [3h] comes on the river, awarding Taylor a full double.  The player on the button tells the table he folded pocket nines. 

Taylor - 50,000

Three minutes pass, and the his opponent says, "I'll show ya man."

St. Vincent continues to think for another minute before folding.
