MSPT $1,110 Main Event

The Talkative Table of Talent

LiamGannon • Level 8: Blinds 500-1,000, 1,000 ante
Craig Trost

At table one of the tournament, lots of lively conversation was being engaged in by many of the players at the table including, Nicola Ditrapani, Ryan Phan, and defending champion Craig Trost.

Phan raised on the button to 2,100 and in the big blind, Craig Trost called after saying "you know I can't fold to that."

The flop came out {q-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} with somebody shouting "blackjack!" Trost checked to Phan who said "button player bets less then pot," before putting out a bet of 1,500 which Trost called.

The turn of {q-Hearts} saw Trost check and Phan checked behind saying "button player gives up."

The river {5-Hearts} saw Trost bet out 5,500 and Phan went into the tank. "You told you gave up a street ago," laughed Trost while Phan pondered his decision. After some more thought he tossed in the chips to call and Trost said "nuts!" He turned over {q-Diamonds}{8-Spades} for queens full and Phan flashed an {8-Clubs} while the defending champion raked in a pot.
