On 15, Paul Volpe bet the from LP into Jerry Maher, getting a call.
On the turn, which might pair a raiser but now was a very dangerous car, the killer checked back sagely. However, another interesting card came out, the , which Jerry chose to lead, always a dangerous move into a talented player.

James sighed and released.
