Gold Takes a Big From Davey

• Nível 26: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Alan Gold, on the button, tried to make a raise but failed to put in enough chips so it was ruled a call. Daragh Davey then raised from the small blind to 165,000. Jonathan Slater folded the big blind and when it got back to Gold he called the young Irishman’s raise and we saw the first flop of the day.

{a-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{10-Spades}Davey led for 155,000 and Gold raised him to 380,000. Davey called. The turn was {j-Hearts}and this time Davey checked. Gold cut out a stack of purples and bet 510,000 and Davey thought for a moment before making the call.

The river was the {8-Diamonds}. Again Davey checked and Gold reached for two towers of purple chips, finally betting 1,175,000. Davey riffled his chips and shook his head. Gold sat back in his chair, arms crossed, implacable. A few minutes ticked by as Davey contemplated his options. It was a huge decision. The table and the crowd were silent as we awaited the outcome. At last he made up his mind and slid his cards to the dealer.

In seat one Christy Morkan let out a low whistle. “He came to play.” Said Morkan of Gold.
