Play has started a little slow at both tables, with most hands ending preflop. At table 453, we just saw some of the first notable action of the day in a hand that looked as though it could develop into a serious confrontation.
Thomas Hall opened the preflop action with a raise to 32,000, and then Jason Bigelow three-bet to 80,000. Everyone else at the table folded around to Hall, who went into the tank. He thought for about three full minutes before pushing forward his calling chips.
The flop came , and Hall quickly checked. Bigelow then bet 100,000, and Hall went back into the tank. After thinking for over a minute, he silently slid his cards toward the dealer, and Bigelow took the pot.
