Marion Slam-a-Jamma'd

He isn't on NBA Jam, but a WSOP bracelet would be just as good!
He isn't on NBA Jam, but a WSOP bracelet would be just as good!

Facing a raise from the button to 700, Shawn Marion made the call from the big blind while enjoying a massage.

The flop of {5-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} was checked through to see the {8-Spades} land on the turn and Marion follow it with a bet of 1,000.

The river landed the {9-Clubs}, and as Marion sat up, lifted his tangerine-tinted sunglasses off his nose and over his eyes to look at the board, he tapped the table very lightly indicating a check.

His opponent casually tossed in a 1,000-denomination chip and Marion didn't take too long in making the call only to be shown his opponent's {7-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}.

Marion shook his head left to right and mucked his hand as he slipped to 29,500 in chips.

"Good hand" Marion stated before his head sunk down within a sweatband or two of his chips.
