In this paper we look for correlations between intermediate p T particle pairs and the v 2 of the remaining low p T particles. We find that the shape of the flow vector distribution, which is calculated from all low p T tracks, depends in a non-trivial way on the angular separation between the high p T particle pairs in the event. Our analysis is based on 200 GeV Au+Au collisions measured with the STAR detector.
