Level 3  100/200                                          
Just got a glance at one nice pot where the board read 2 5 9 8 rainbow.  Player in late position bet his last 26k+, Len Cortellino goes in the tank for a few minutes then calls.  LP shows 66 while Len shows 58 for 2 pair. River goes Jx.  Len is now over 94K .
