Adam Friedman{x-}{x-} / {2-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{6-Spades} / {x-}
John Monnette{x-}{x-} / {a-Clubs}{2-Spades}{j-Hearts}{k-Diamonds} / {x-}
Nikolai Yakovenko{x-}{x-} / {4-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} (FOLDED)

Friedman brought it in, Monnette completed, and Yakovenko called. Friedman called as well. On fourth street, Monnette bet out, and only Friedman called. Friedman called another bet on fifth, and both players checked on sixth. Monnette checked again on seventh, and Friedman tanked a bit before betting.

"Big decision?" Monnette asked.

"Every decision is a big one," Friedman quickly returned.

Monnette eventually mucked, and Friedman added to his stack.
