We picked up the action on a flop and the small blind quickly bet out pot, 675. Dan Smith, who was on the button, instantly raised pot and threw in a lot of big chips. While his opponent was tanking Smith seemed very relaxed and even produced an "Howdy!" to yours truly who was following the action. "Because we're friends I'll show you if you fold," Smith replied to his opponent who seemed to be really hurting.
After a while he folded and Smith turned over for two pair. The young American pro raked in the pot and is up to 7,000 chips.
