Victor Ramdin scooped a nice pot just before the dinner break, but we were unable to get the action from it due to watching the Rifat Palevic/Vadim Ifergan confrontation. We just stopped over at Ramdin's table to ask him how the hand went down and he replayed the basics to us.
Ramdin opened with a raise to 3,000 from under the gun with two queens. One player called behind him and then Elio Fox three-bet from the small blind to 10,000 Ramdin said. Ramdin and the other player both called.
The flop came down with two hearts. Fox fired 13,000 and only Ramdin called to see the turn, which was a . Fox fired 16,000 and Ramdin called again with his queens.

Just recently after the dinner break, Ramdin three-bet Dermot Blain's preflop open of 3,600 to 8,700 and won that pot. He's up to about 280,000 now and looking strong.
