Huy Lam raises to 36,000 from middle position and Martino Britke moves all-in for 130,000 total. Action gets back to Lam, who starts to think.
Britke quizzes his opponent. "You called ace-six that other hand, you fold for this?"
Lam replies, asking, "You want me to call?"
"Of course I do!"
Lam thinks a little while longer, then calls with [9d10d]. He is up against Britke’s [KdJh].
Britke is safe on the [7s3h2h] flop and stays safe with the [7d] on the turn. The river brings the [9s] though, pairing Lam’s nine to give him the pot.
Britke pounds his fist on the table in frustration, then abruptly rises, knocking his chair over. He angrily exits the tournament area.
After he is gone, the table is talking about the hand. Lam tells his tablemates he never would’ve called if his opponent hadn’t started talking, egging him on to play the pot.
Huy Lam – 857,000 (54 bb)
Martino Bakri – Eliminated in 19th place ($14,025)
