The Maths Said Call

• Level 8: 400-800, 100 ante

Darold Donnelly had shoved over the an opener in the previous hand and shown {9-}{9-} when the raiser folded. On the next hand he was in the small blind when John Pack opened from early position and again Donnelly shoved when it folded to him.

Pack started doing the math out loud and remarked in response to a comment from Donnelly that it would be hard to make two pair with his hand. He thought for a few minutes and there seemed to be a slight bit of needle between the two players as Pack said Donnelly could call the clock on him if he wanted, with his opponent responding that he would never call the clock on him.

Pack did make the call though in the end with {8-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} and was behind the {j-Diamonds}{j-Spades} of Donnelly.

The cards fell {5-Spades}{j-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} and the Jacks of Donnelly held for a double up.
