Gee Opts Not to Put Tournament Life on the Line

[user153638]

We happened upon the table on an {8-Spades}{A-Spades}{K-Spades} flop with quite a bit in the middle from preflop action. It appeared Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier had checked from the cutoff and Steven Gee, who won a bracelet in 2010 and is a member of this year's coveted October Nine, put out a bet of 5,000, leaving himself just 7,700 behind.

Grospellier then put in a check-raise to 11,125, essentially enough to put Gee's tournament life on the line if he were to make the call. The October Niner thought about it for about 30 seconds before folding. Grospellier allowed Gee to pick one and Gee grabbed what turned out to be the {Q-Spades}. "I can't call," Gee said as Grospellier was pushed the pot and increased his already massive stack.
