Dong Kim Doubles Thru Vanessa Selbst
Level 9: 300-600, 75 ante
Vanessa Selbst raises to 1,400 from middle position and Dong Kim reraises to 3,600 from the cutoff. The player in the small blind moves all-in for 7,500 total.
Selbst clarifies with the dealer that should she call the player behind her would be allowed to reraise. The dealer confirms that is the case and Selbst takes a minute before reraising to 13,300 total. Kim calls, leaving around 50,000 behind.
The flop comes down 964 and Selbst eyes Kim's stack and thinks for a minute or so before betting enough to put Kim all-in. Kim thinks for a few seconds and looks up to say hello to a friend as he walks by. After around 20 seconds of deliberation, he calls for his last 51,000.
Selbst turns over AK for ace high, while Kim shows 44 for a set of fours.
Selbst is shocked and a little frustrated. She rises from her chair for a moment, saying, "Are you kidding me?"
When she sits back down, she tells Kim, "Nice slowroll." The turn brings the 3 and the river the J and Kim wins the side pot to double up. The all-in player mucks his hand and Kim takes the main pot as well.
Dong Kim - 130,000
Vanessa Selbst - 135,500
