Hall Saved From Having a Heart Attack
A-5 Triple Draw
Galen Hall raised from under the gun and both Daniel Strelitz on the button and small blind Philip Eisman called.
"I predict this could be a big one," tablemate Frank Kassela said as he rose from his seat.
Hall bet after drawing one and Strelitz called. Eisman check-raised and both opponents called.
He stood pat while Hall took one and Strelitz two. Only Hall called a bet after the second draw as Eisman stood pat again.
Hall took one and Eisman checked. Hall took the opportunity to bet and Eisman snap-called, announcing "7-6 perfect."
"No good," the WSOP bracelet winner said, turning over 6-5-3-2-A to win the pot.
After the hand, Hall admitted he almost misread his hand and thought he had two deuces. "I almost had a heart attack. It wouldn't be the first time I did that today," he said, relieved that he got to stack the chips.
