Ricciardi Makes Great Call; Doubles Through Sowers

Wow. We just saw one of the biggest pots of the tournament so far in a pot that saw Dominic Ricciardi make a fantastic call against Mike Sowers. When we got to the table, Ricciardi was pacing up and down by his chair, as he was making a huge decision. The board read {4-Hearts}{8-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{j-Hearts}, and with about 90,000 already in the pot, Ricciardi checked to Sowers, who over bet the pot by going all in. Ricciardi had about 160,000 left, and was put to an incredibly tough decision.

After about 2 minutes of pacing and thinking he made the call, and all Sower could say was "You're good." Ricciardi slammed down {6-Hearts}{6-Clubs} for a flopped set, and Sowers mucked his hand. After counting everything down, Ricciardi was up to 480,000, while Sowers, who started the day with over 400,000, is now sitting on just over 50,000.
