Dannenmann Double-Dipping

$200 + $30 Deep Stack Turbo No Limit Hold'em

Everyone's favorite runner-up, Steven Dannenmann, is double-trouble today. He's playing this event now and at noon he will be playing day two of event 1, which he survived yesterday (winning a $6 bet from Jason Young in the process).

As luck would have it, Jason and Steve were assigned to the same table today and were having some fun with the re-entry concept. They're raising without looking at their hands. While I was watching, Jason made it 1k utg (50/100 blinds) and Steve (two seats to his left) made it 5k, also in the dark. Action folded around to Tim Strickland (Rocky Mtn, NC) in the big blind, who moved all-in for about 19,300.

Jason then decided to look at his cards and mucked A2. Steve made the call in the dark. Tim tabled 98 off and was actually ahead when Steve revealed his 54 suited in diamonds. The flop came J 8 3 rainbow and Tim extended his lead with a pair of 8s. The last two were 7 4 and no help for Steve. Tim doubled up to almost 40k.

Steve was left with about 3,300 and was all-in on the next hand. The player on the button called as did Jason Young in the big blind. On the flop of A 7 2 - all diamonds - Jason moved all-in. The button folded and Jason tabled Q9 with the 9 of diamonds for the flush draw. Steve rolled over his 83 offsuit (no diamond) and was drawing thin. It was over on the turn when the Jack of diamonds fell, completing Jason's flush. Jason collected the pot and got his $6 last-longer bet back from Steve, who headed to the re-entry cage to get some more chips. Why not? He's still got a half a hour before he has to resume play in event 1.

Jason and Steve having fun (player in between, not so much)
