Hans Minocha opened with a raise from under the gun (now to 24,000), then Vincent Gironda three-bet on the button (to 36,000). It folded back to Minocha who called, and the flop came {6-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{10-Spades}. Minocha checked, Gironda bet, and Minocha called. Minocha again check-called a Gironda bet after the {J-Diamonds} turn card arrived.
