Hand #178: A War of Words
Level 30: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante
Hand #178 - Ken Aldridge raises to 200,000 from under the gun and Jeff Vertes reraises to 550,000 behind him. Will Failla is on the button and cold four-bets to 1,100,000.
Aldridge starts to think and Failla tells him, "You know it's me, buddy. We gotta play one hand." Aldridge opts to pass and folds his hand. Now it is on Vertes to make a decision.
"There are three hands that can beat me," Vertes tells Failla.
"Well, I've got one of them," Failla retorts.
Vertes thinks for a little while longer, then engages Failla again. "Sounds like you really want me to fold."
Once again, Failla is ready with a response, telling Vertes, I'd love to see you call with two outs."
Eventually Vertes folds JJ face-up. He asks Failla to show and Failla agrees to do so if Vertes pays him $20 at tomorrow's final table. Vertes agrees and Failla shows him QQ.
