We caught up to the action to find Robert Varkonyi raising to 6,000 from the button. A player in early position had made it 2,000, and another player from middle position called, now they both faced a raise from Varkonyi. The player from early position fiddled around with his chips for a few moments before eventually making the call. The player in middle position followed suit and also put the chips in.
After the dealer spread out a flop the player in early position checked, and it was the middle position player who bet out 3,000. Varkonyi made the call while the early position player dropped his cards in the muck.
The on the turn brought with it a bet of 3,000 from the player in middle position and a raise to 9,000 from Varkonyi. Varkonyi's opponent barely thought about it and threw in the appropriate amount of chips.
A river changed nothing for Varkonyi's opponent who bet out again, this time only 2,000. Varkonyi's head slowly drooped like he just witnessed the worst possible out come for the hand. Varkonyi stared at the felt in front of him for a moment or two before he threw out a bet large enough to put his opponent all in who had around 30,000 in chips. Varkonyi's opponent fooled around with some chips in his hand for a while before ultimately folding. Varkonyi was awarded the pot and received a handful of "nice hands" from the players at his table
