Tony Dunst Eats Into the Chip Lead of Will Failla
Level 20: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante
Will Failla raises from the small blind to 25,000, and as Tony Dunst thinks in the big blind, Failla says, "I'd probably raise with anything, but this time I actually have a hand." Dunst calls.
As the dealer pulls in the chips, Failla asks Dunst, "Do you wannt talk in the hand, or stay silent?" Dunst says, "I'm usually silent, but I know you're gonna talk."
The flop comes A74, Failla checks, Dunst bets 30,000, and Failla calls. The turn card is the 8, Failla checks, Dunst bets 75,000, and Failla calls.
Failla is in seat 9, next to the dealer, and he quietly asks, "Can you pair the board?" (It's not clear if Dunst could hear him from the other side of the table.) The river card pairs the board with the 8.
Failla checks, and Dunst bets 125,000. Failla says, "Wow. He can't be bluffing now, can he?" Failla thinks another 10 seconds or so before he calls.
Dunst shows A10 for two pair, aces and eights, with a ten kicker. Failla mucks, saying, "Good three-outer." (Implying that Failla had a pair of kings, queens, or jacks.)
Tony Dunst - 1,135,000 (113 BBs)
Will Failla - 1,470,000 (147 BBs)
After the hand, Matt Marafioti jokingly tells Failla that he had bad karma from the previous hand, either because Failla four-bet Marafioti or refused to show one card after taking the pot.
