Tables are breaking as players bust out and as fate would have it two of the bigger stacks in the room are now sat next to each other. Chip leader Steven Hensley has been moved to the left of Christopher MacNeil and they haven’t wasted much time getting involved with each other.
We joined the action as the two players had got to the turn of a board reading . MacNeil was in the big blind and led out for 14,000. Hensley in first position raised him to 30,000 and after a minutes thought MacNeil raised him right back to 80,000.
Hensley mulled it over for a while. Looked back at his cards one more time and tossed them to the dealer.
Another player at the table said that he had folded adding, “Someone’s up to something.”
They certainly are. Round 1 to MacNeil.
