Event #65: $10,000 Main Event

"I Wish That Hand Was on TV"

[user249920] • Level 22: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

We found Andrew Liporace in early position and tanking against a bet of 135,000 from Dan Smith, who was in the big blind. The board was {7-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}, and Liporace only had 415,000 total. He agonized over the decision, first laying his head on the table's rail, then letting out a deep sigh as he shifted in his seat.

"Sorry guys, it's tough," he said. "How old are you?" he asked Smith, perhaps looking for any clue that would nudge him towards the right decision.

Smith remained motionless, sitting straight up in his seat until he uttered the word "time" a few moments later.

Halfway through his 10-second countdown, Liporace whipped his cards into the muck.

"I wish that hand was on TV," he said.
