A blind on blind battle between Seth Davies (small blind) and Jeff Rossiter (big blind) resulted in the elimination of Seth Davies. We missed the preflop betting but there looked to be just over 100k in the pot when we caught the action on a flop.
Davies checked over to Rossiter, who fired out a 55,000 bet and Davies chewed over his decision under the scrutiny of Rossiter’s laser-eyed stare and eventually made the call.
The turn brought a second check from Davies and an impassive Rossiter reached for the dark blue 25k chips and slid out a raise of 190,000. The intensity of Rossiter’s stare down seemed to increase with his bet size but Davies was not deterred and called for a second time.
The river brought a third and final check from Davies and Rossiter quickly pushed out a 500,000 bet – Davies had around 480,000 behind so this had him covered and he went deep into the tank but eventually threw in the calling chips.
Rossiter rolled over and Davies mucked his hand face down, got up and left the table meaning we are now down to our final 11 players.
