Greenstein's Stack Growing

When we got to the table, we saw that Barry Greenstein had put in a three bet to 2,400 from the button, and that the original raiser, who would be his lone opponent in the hand, called. The dealer fanned out a flop of {a-Spades}{k-Hearts}{3-Spades}, and Greenstein's opponent led out for 3,000. Greenstein came along, and the turn brought the {6-Spades}. It was checked to Greenstein, who fired out 6,000.

Greenstein's opponent cut out the chips for the call, then went into the tank. About 45 seconds into his thinking, he asked Greenstein how much he had left. Greenstein showed his higher value chips, and said "pretty sure I had you covered to start the hand." After about 90 seconds in the tank, Greenstein's opponent made the call, and the river brought the {5-Diamonds}. It was checked to Greenstein again, and this time, he fired out 20,000. His opponent snap folded, and Greenstein took the pot down to up his stack to 68,000.
