Ladies and Gentlemen, WPT Amneville has its first millionaire. Scott Baumstein now has more than one million chips after winning a huge pot against the man who crippled Marvin Rettenmaier, Rony Halimi.
Joining the hand on a board reading K5497 Baumstein checked to Halimi who took almost three minutes to bet 65,000. Within moments of betting, Halimi called the clock on Baumstein but the floor ruled in favour of the American.
Baumstein said, "I know you're bluffing. What do you have? Queen-jack? Ace-jack?". Moments later he called with T6 for a flush and Halimi turned over AQ for not very much at all.
"If you moved all in I would have folded. Ship it in my friend," informed Baumstein.
