Ones to Watch Garrett Greer
There is around 20,000 already in the pot with the board reading AheartJspade10spade6club4heart when Garrett Greer, who is part of the newly-announced crop of WPT Season XIII Ones to Watch, take several minutes before moving all-in for around 27,000 from early position.

His opponent is on the button and Greer has him covered, as he is sitting on around 21,000. He deliberates for a number of minutes himself before eventually asking Greer, "A busted draw?"

The other player eventually folds and Greer takes down the sizeable pot.
