Event #83: $50,000 High Roller No-Limit Hold'em

Vieira and Hall Trade Big Pots

blaisebourgeois • Level 22: Blinds 125,000-250,000, 250,000 ante

Joao Vieira opened to 500,000 and Galen Hall raised it from the small blind to 2,000,000. Vieira took his time before going all in and Hall snap-foled.

A few hands later, Vieira again opened to 500,000 and Hall again raised it to 2,000,000 from the small blind. This time, Vieira was content to just call.

The flop came {6-Hearts}{5-Spades}{4-Clubs} and both players would tap the table.

On the {3-Hearts} turn, which put four to a straight on the board, both players would check once more.

The {j-Clubs} arrived on the river and Hall would use a time bank before arriving at a bet of 2,800,000 less than a second before his additional 30 seconds were up.

Vieira would go into the tank and spend nearly two minutes making his decision. After using three time banks, leaving just one time bank chip behind, he would make the fold.
