Saul Clocked...Twice

• Level 8: 250-500, 50 ante
Kevin Saul

Kevin Saul and Andrea Dato tangled in back-to-back hands. First, on a board of {2-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}, Saul moved all in, putting Dato's last 11,000 or so at risk. Dato thought for a few minutes before Saul eventually called the clock.

Dato made the call in the middle of his countdown and Saul confidently tabled {q-Hearts}{8-Hearts}, but he was behind the {k-Spades}{q-Clubs} of Dato. "Why did you slowroll me bro", Saul asked indignantly, as the board finished {5-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}.

"It was no slowroll from me," responded Dato, and they were back at it the very next hand from the blinds when Saul opened to 2,000 from the small blind and Dato made the call.

The flop was {7-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds} and Saul bet 2,400. Dato raised to 5,500 and Saul called. The turn was the {a-Spades} and both players checked. After the {4-Hearts} river, Saul led for 3,500 and it was met with another raise from Dato to 8,600 and Saul folded.
