Curiousness on the floor as Darren Shebell took exception to the presence of well-known WSOP presenter and producer Joy Miller behind him as he played.
"Can you leave the room, I'm trying to protect my hand," said Shebell.
This was not the right thing to say to Joy Miller.
We rather lost track of the argument that ensued, although we do know that the phrase, "If you ever went deeper than top 12 you'd know who I am," left Miller's mouth. Eventually Owais Ahmed got involved as well somehow, albeit briefly.
Anyway, after a while Miller did in fact leave and peace returned to the tournament floor.
Christine Pietsch: /
Pat Pezzin: (XXX) /
Alex Kravchenko: (XX) / - fold
Christine Pietsch completed and Pat Pezzin and Alex Kravchenko both called. Pezzin, with a pair of nines showing, bet out on fourth street and Kravchenko folded; Pietsch made the call though and they were heads up.
Pezzin bet out again on fifth and sixth streets and both times Pietsch made the call. They both checked on seventh and Pietsch's two pair was presumably good enough to win, as Pezzin just mucked his hand.
