It's always a tense atmosphere in a hand-for-hand situation, and Dietrich Fast's all in was no different. The winner of the €10,300 High Roller earlier this week jammed 19,000 from the button and fellow countryman Louis Cartarius looked him up in the big blind.
It took minutes before the hands on all the other tables were finished, which gave the railbirds and camera's plenty of time to swamp the table. Eventually, the hand went to showdown.
The densely packed crowd gathered to watch the flop being dealt.
"You can all go now," laughed Fast.
Fast's remark obviously opened the door for a jinx, and sure enough did the on the turn give Cartarius some straight outs. The river wasn't the ten he was looking for, and Fast doubled up.
