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

Siegel Tanks and Tanks and Folds


Over on the feature table, Jordan Siegel opened to 42,000 from middle position, and with the action on Daniel Chamberlain in the small blind he slid in 60,000.

With that amount falling under the minimum raise amount, he was forced to make it 62,000 to go as Siegel made the call.

The flop fell down {J-Hearts}{A-Clubs}{9-Hearts} and Chamberlain led out for 83,000 with Siegel quickly making the call as the {7-Clubs} landed on the turn.

Taking nearly ninety seconds, Chamberlain led out strongly once again; this time for 165,000 as Siegel once again quickly made the call.

The river landed the {2-Diamonds} and Chamberlain moved all in for over 1,300,000 to put Siegel to a test for roughly his last 320,000.

With Siegel resting his head on his perched left hand while shuffling chips in the other, he went deep into the tank contemplating a decision for his tournament life on just the very first hand of day six play.

Two minutes went by before Siegel finally looked up before resting his head on his right hand, and then both, before finally returning to his right as he sank deeper into his chair while staring directly at his cards.

Another minute went by before Siegel tossed his cards into the muck to see Chamberlain collect the pot to move to 2,000,000 in chips.
