Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

You Can't Hurry Phil

Shamus • Level 11: 800-1,600, 200 ante

With about 12,000 in the middle and the board showing {Q-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}, it checked to Phil Collins on the button who bet 7,000. John Hill called from the big blind, and the third player folded in between.

The turn was the {5-Spades}. This time Hill led with a bet of 12,000, and Collins sat motionless for about a minute. Finally, with great deliberation, Collins raised to 27,000, and Hill went deep into the tank. After a couple of minutes Hill stacked 61,000 and began riffling the chips, gauging Collins' for a reaction. Finally Hill rechecked his cards, then pushed them face down to the dealer.

Collins has about 245,000 now.
