Event 4 - $1,500 Pot Limit Holdem
The blinds have increased to 20,000-40,000, and players can either limp preflop, or raise it to 80,000-140,000.
Mike Spegal - 1,580,000
Gavin Smith - 770,000
The river card pairs the board with the . Spegal checks, Smith announces "Pot," which is determined to be 180,000, and he moves a few stacks of chips forward. Spegal reraises the size of the pot, and Smith thinks for a full minute before he calls all in.
Spegal shows for trip eights, and Smith shows -- for trip eights.
All that drama, and it's just a chopped pot. Smith would've had a tough time dealing with it if he folded and later saw on TV that they had identical hands.
