Welcome to the Fish Tank


With 1,125 in the pot, Darryll Fish checked and was followed by a player in middle position. With action on the button, that player bet 675. Fish then woke up with an all-in check-raise to 4,200, prompting the middle-position player out of the pot. The button tanked for a solid minute before conceding the hand to Fish, who is up to 6,100.
