Under the gun, Dan Shak opened to 50,000, and Galen Hall dropped 75,000 into the pot. That was an under-raise, and he was forced to add the extra 5,000 to make it a mini-raise to 80,000. The table folded around to the big blind, and Jonathan Duhamel was thinking sinister thoughts. He stacked out 216,000 and slid it into the pot, and Shak tanked and folded. Hall ducked out too, and Duhamel took it down.
Shak was a bit burned that he wasn't able to stay in. "I was so sure I had you beat," he told Duhamel. "Because he [Hall] meant to call, obviously. You just had to hope I was light."
"It's five-handed though. Anybody can be light," Duhamel quipped back.
"I know," Shak answered. "But I wasn't that light."
