With about 9,000 in the pot, Emil Patel and his opponent were heads up on a board that read . Patel's opponent bet out 3,500, and Patel put together a raise of 15,500. After about 1 minute of thought, his opponent cut out a stack of orange T5000 chips and put them in the middle, 40,000 in total. Patel has been known to be very methodical with every decision, and this case was no different. He thought in silence for about two minutes before asking "Where are you from sir?" He got no response, and continued thinking for another two minutes. He finally threw in the call, and his opponent showed for the nut straight. Patel quickly mucked his hand, and dropped down to just over 80,000, which is still a bit above average.
