Apostol Virgil Beg started things off with a bet to 3,500 from early position in Day 1b action. It folded to John Dwyer in the big blind, and he called.
The heads up flop came :::8h:::7s:::7c and it checked around. Beg bet 6,000 after a check from Dwyer on the :::4h turn, but Dwyer check-raised to 17,000.
After a few seconds in the tank, Beg called, and the :::5d river went check-check. Beg showed down :::Ac:::7d for flopped trips, and Dwyer mucked his hand.
