Josh Arieh limped into the pot under the gun, and he was followed in by Steve Zolotow, two unknown players, and Shaun Deeb in the small blind. From the big, Tom Dwan snuck in a raise, and everyone splashed the extra bet into the pot nearly simultaneously.
The flop came , and Dwan and Arieh were quickly heads up. Dwan put out the first bet, and Arieh made it two bets to go. When the monkeys in the middle folded, Dwan called the second bet, and the appeared on the turn. Dwan check-called another bet there, and he did the same following the river.
Arieh showed down , and his straight to the king was good enough for the pot.
"All right," Dwan said immediately. "Who wants to book me for $15,000?" Steve Zolotow was obviously hungry for action, but he had no idea what Durrrr meant by his offer. It took about two minutes of Deeb and Dwan awkwardly explaining the scenario before Zolotow passed.
Smart man. Dwan still has 45,000 left.
