Douglas Polk opted to use one of his lammers immediately to have a stack of 320,000. Brock Parker kept his two lammers behind to start with 160,000 and has evened the match.
Picking up the action on a board, Polk's bet of 42,000 was called by Parker. When the river fell, Polk bet enough to cover Parker's stack. It didn't take long for Parker to call.
"Eight high," said Polk.
Parker tabled for a flush to score the first blow in the match.
