Long Tank for Davies

donpeters • Level 25: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante
Scott Davies

Hand #52: Jack Salter raised to 80,000 on the button, and Scott Davies made the call from the big blind.

"Can't turn down a discount," said Davies, referencing Salter's preflop raise was 10,000 cheaper on this hand than what he has previously been making it.

The flop came down {J-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}, and Davies checked. Salter bet 95,000, but he was met with resistance in the form of a check-raise to 285,000. Salter called, and the turn was the {J-Hearts} to pair the board. On fourth street, Davies led for 240,000. Salter stuck around with a call, and the dealer completed the board with the {3-Diamonds} on the river.

Davies checked on the end, and Salter reached for chips. Salter fired 930,000, and this sent Davies into the tank for several minutes.

Davies talk out loud a bit to himself while he tanked. "You're such a sicko, Jack," he said at one point.

Then, the tournament director leaned in and told Davies that the clock had been called and the countdown began. With just a few seconds left on the clock, Davies folded, and Salter won the pot.
