Event #62: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

Conversation and Cards

Shamus • Nível 24: 15,000-30,000, 5,000 ante

The conversation over at Table 425 has been especially entertaining over the last couple of levels, with most at the table in a chatty mood and all still reacting here and there to Vitaly Lunkin's interesting play a little while ago when he bet all in dark before the flop.

Chris Kinane has been relatively quiet, comparatively speaking, so just now when he raised to 100,000 over an Umang Dattani limp, Brandon Steven took the opportunity to engage him, asking Kinane where was from and what he did for a living.

Kinane explained he was from Allentown, PA, and teaches high school math, to which Curo Zuccarello (sitting to Kinane's right) joked that "the math gets a little complicated" in poker and so he may need to consult him.

After that Dattani and Keanu Tabali agreed to order beers during the last hour of play tonight. "If we're still here," added Dattani. "The way Vitaly's playing, we might all be gone."

Dattani then suggested in a deadpan manner that if one of the two of them were to bust, the other would give the player who'd busted 10% of what he won. "Um… I don't think I can do that," said Tabali with a grin, and Dattani said he was joking.

There won't be any need, then, to get Kinane to help with any percentage problems later on.
