We haven't mentioned David Bach's name much since before the dinner break and that's because he hasn't done much. He was involved in this one though.

Bach raised from under the gun and Eli Elezra called from the big blind. Both players then drew one card and Elezra check-called Bach's bet. On the second draw, both players took one card again. Elezra checked, Bach bet and Elezra called.

It was time for the final draw and both players still needed to take another card. The dealer gave one to each of them and collected their discards. Elezra then led out into Bach. Bach mucked his hand and Elezra won the pot.
