Benny Glaser

No-Limit Hold'em

Dan Cates opened to 125,000 under the gun but was met with a three-bet to 375,000 from Benny Glaser on the button.

Cates took his time before cutting out a four-bet to 875,000.

After a minute or so of studying and contemplation, Glaser five-bet all in for approximately 3,000,000.

Cates quickly mucked his hand, with Glaser saying "I didn't want a call," as he gathered his opponent's chips.
