"Of Course I'm Calling"
Livello 12 : 600-1,200, 200 ante
With the board already showing , Kenichi Takarabe bet 11,000 and Nicholas Blumenthal called. The hit on the river and Takarabe declared all in. Blumenthal snap-called and the hands were revealed.
Takarabe seemed to be trying to pull a fast one on the river and was none too happy to find that Blumenthal had flopped a straight. Blumenthal said "Of course I'm calling there, but I didn't like the river." The river did pair the board but didn't help Takarabe, who was eliminated.
After the hand Blumenthal had a mountain of chips in front of him totaling around 195,000.
