Event #62: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

Galfond Wasn't Expecting to See That

• Nivå 13: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante

There was about 75,000 in the middle on a completed board of {6-Spades}{j-Hearts}{3-Spades}{7-Spades}{5-Spades} when we walked up to the table. We saw that Phil Galfond and Tommy Hang were heads up, and it was on Hang, who thought his options over for a bit before firing out 43,000. This bet sent Galfond deep into the tank.

After about a minute, he told Hang "Don't worry I'm not gonna raise." Hang simply smiled and said "I had ruled that out already." Galfond cut out the chips for the call, but kept them in front of his stack as he tanked for another two minutes or so. Eventually, he slid the call in, and Hang showed {a-Spades}{9-Clubs} for the ace high flush.

Galfond said "Well I had ruled that out. My mistake. Nice hand." Galfond dropped to 86,000 after that one, while Hang jumped up to 350,000.

Chips Count
Tommy Hang us 350,000 90,000
Phil Galfond us 86,000 -44,000
