Behzad Ahadpour limped in under the gun and Max Silver, involved in a conversation with his neighbor Scott Seiver, casually raised to 800 from the button. Big blind Dan Shak called, Ahadpour folded.
The flop came and Shak check-called a bet of 1,000.
With the hitting the turn, Shak checked again. This time around, Silver bet 3,000. Again, Shak called.
The on the river completed the board and Shak checked. Silver thought about it for about a minute and a half or so before checking behind.
Shak showed for the nuts.
"Ooh!" Silver said, "Big check back!"
Silver showed and Shak said: "You're too good."
"I wanted to bet the river but I was too scared. That's not good, that's being a wimp." Silver said, now with an ever bigger smile.
