Smith & Vaillancourt Play Ten Minute Hand

Noah Vaillancourt pulling ahead.

Dan Smith started the action by opened to 42,000 and Noah Vaillancourt raised to 93,000 from the cutoff. The blinds released and Smith re-raised to 177,000. Vaillancourt took some time to think and then called.

The flop came {2-Clubs} {7-Clubs} {4-Clubs}, Smith bet 146,000 and Vaillancourt called. But that took quite some time. The turn came {Q-Hearts} which both players eventually checked. The river brought the {10-Hearts}, Smith checked and Vaillancourt bet 238,000 after an excruciatingly long tank. Smith folded rather quickly compared to the pace of the hand and Vaillancourt chipped up significantly.

All in all the hand took about ten minutes to play out.
