Greim and Young Play an Interesting One

• Level 19: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante

Paul Greim announced that he was all in from under the gun. He had 65,000 left but slid out just one stack of about 15 yellows representing his shove. Ryan Young was in the cutoff and said, "Call." However, he didn't realize that it was an all in bet and was made aware of it immediately by the rest of the table. By rule of verbal declaration, he was forced to put in 65,000 regardless of the mistake. Ben Volpe, who was in the big blind, seemed torn about the decision he was faced with but eventually folded.

Amazingly, Young was ahead with his {q-Hearts}{9-Hearts} against the {j-Clubs}{4-Clubs} of Greim. The flop would change things though when it fell {a-Clubs}{4-Spades}{3-Diamonds}. The turn {a-Spades} and river {5-Spades} brought Young no help. The pot allowed Greim to double up and left Young with only 210,000.

Afterwards, the table debated whether Volpe would have been correct to move all in from the big blind with {8-Spades}{7-Spades}. In an attempt to isolate while getting better than 2 to 1 on his money, Volpe would have made a flush. The table appeared generally in favor of it and it leaves Volpe, who has 690,000 in chips, wondering if he should have more.
