Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Jacob Makes a Statement

Alex Jacob has kept quiet for most of the day, letting his hair do the talking. He let his chips carry the conversation in this one.

Jacob bet 10,000 into a sizable pot on an {a-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} flop, and his opponent in late position called. The river was the {10-Clubs}, and Jacob sat silently for a moment before mouthing "all in." The dealer repeated it, and the other player looked stricken and tossed his cards at the muck. Jacob moved up to 160,000 with the hand.
