Marcus Releases Under Pressure

With 1,800 chips in the pot preflop, action checked to Van Marcus on a flop of {5-Hearts} {4-Hearts} {Q-Spades}. He bet 1,150. His lone opponent, sitting in the small blind, asked Marcus for a count.

"About 4,000 more," said Marcus. His opponent nodded, processed that information, and then moved all in for 13,000. Marcus considered his options for about thirty second before folding.
