Action picked up preflop with Gregg Merkow and Christopher Keller trading raises to get all their chips in the middle. Both had similar stacks of just about ten big blinds.

Christopher Keller: {a-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}
Gregg Merkow: {k-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{8-Spades}

The flop came out {2-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}, still overpair versus overpair. The turn brought the {10-Clubs}, adding a flush draw for Keller. The river fell the {5-Diamonds}, and Merkow's kings held for the full double.

Left with about one big blind, Keller then tripled up and then doubled up in the next few hands to get back some of his chips.
