Craig Trost opened to 70,000 from early position and Gershon Distenfeld three-bet to 230,000 from middle position. Action folded back to Trost who four-bet to 750,000. Distenfeld then jammed in his stack of about 2,000,000.

Trost joked, "Well, I hope it's not a cold deck." He put in the call while appearing to expect the worst.

Craig Trost: {k-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}
Gershon Distenfeld: {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs}

It was a classic cooler to start the day. The board ran out {10-Hearts}{6-Spades}{4-Spades}{9-Hearts}{10-Clubs} to send Trost to the rail and give Distenfeld an early double.
