Galfond and Sulsky's Dueling

Phil Galfond Pondering His Next Move Here on Day 2

With the flop showing {4-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}, Ben Sulsky check-called a bet of 40,000 made by Phil Galfond.

The turn brought the {2-Spades}, both players tapped the table, and the {7-Clubs} fell on the river.

After another check by Sulsky, Galfond fired a bet of 105,000 into the middle, prompting Sulsky to tank for a minute or so before moving his entire stack forward and forcing Galfond to a test for his tournament life.

The online pro known as "OMGClayAiken" on the virtual felt was put to a tough decision, and he chewed his finger for while before finally sliding his cards toward the dealer.

"Nice hand," said Galfond, appreciative of the high-skill level brought to bear in this matchup. Sulsky could only nod his head in the affirmative, as if to say "why yes Phil, it was a nice hand indeed."
