Event #20: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout

"Sorry Guys, It Won't Be Too Much Longer"

Chad_Holloway • Level 2: 400-800, 100 ante

With around 17,000 in the pot and a board reading {2-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}, Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond bet 10,600 from the small blind and Nick Abou Risk paused for a few beats before announcing that he was all in for approximately 40,000.

Galfond didn't seem to like it, and he hit the tank to contemplate his decision. Nearly five minutes ticked by before Galfond told the table, which contained Risk and Stewart Newman, "Sorry guys, it won't be too much longer."

Indeed, another 30 seconds passed and Galfond released his hand.
