With over 10,000 already in the pot and the board showing the player in the small blind thought about his decision for a minute before sliding out a bet totalling 4,100. Charlie Carrel was his opponent in the hand and he called shortly after.
The completed the board and the small blind then reached for his chips and moved all in for 11,725. Carrel had him covered by 350 and had a decision to make.
"I ask for three minutes. That's ok?" Carrel asked his fellow tables mates.
"We like you and want you to stay so take as long as you like," added one of the players, before Carrel went into interrogation mode, studying his opponent and trying to find a read he could use.
Eventually, Carrel stacked up his chips and slid them forward. His opponent then revealed for two pair and took down the pot after Carrel showed for a lesser two pair.
Carrel was left with only 350 chips. We will have to wait and see if Carrel can make a recovery with less then one big blind in play.
