Macnamara Puts Pollak To The Test

KaleGozer • Level 16: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante

In a blind-versus-blind confrontation, the pot had already swollen in size when Tomas Macnamara bet 62,000 on a {9-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} board. Pollak called the bet in the big blind.

On the {7-Hearts} river, Macnamara moved all in for 201,000. Pollak had 185,000 behind, making this a decision for his tournament life. The Frenchman spent over five minutes in the tank, agonizing over his decision. At times, he glanced over at Macnamara, who didn't flinch.

Pollak eventually elected to let it slide, letting his right-hand neighbor scoop up the pot.
