We've walked by Mike "The Mad Genius" Caro's table here in the Pavilion room countless times today but had yet to catch him involved in a hand until just recently.
A player in middle position raised to 1,200 and Caro re-raised to 3,200 from the hijack. Action folded back around to the original raiser who tossed in a call.
The flop came and both players checked. When the fell on the turn the first player bet out 3,000 and Caro thought for a bit before calling. The river brought the and the first player checked it over to Caro who went into the tank. Caro carefully studied his opponent, no doubt looking for a tell of some kind, and played with his orange T5000 chips looking like he wanted to toss one out as a bet.
He eventually decided to check and flipped up his which prompted the other player to muck his hand. After a bit of banter between the two, the other player admitted he held ace-jack which seemed to surprise Caro a bit.
Caro has been maintaining a decent stack on Day 1 and after the hand was up to 51,000.
