Greg Raymer has moved tables and has wasted no time in talking up a storm, entertaining the table with various stories of people he has played with and the bizarre poker theories they have told him about. For example, one group of amateurs had worked out that if they didn’t play a single hand on a Day 1 WSOP event they would be guaranteed to make Day 2. That seemed to tickle him.
There was no chat though when Raymer face off in a hand against David Zeitlin. The got to the turn of a board reading and Zeitlin check-called a bet of 700 from Raymer.
The river card was the and now Zeitlin led for 2,400. Raymer contemplated the board and raised him to 5,000. Zeitlin checked how much the bet was before giving up his hand.
Raymer was free to start talking again, and he did.
