Ben Heath Talks His Way to Chips

Move over William Kassouf, there's a new motormouth in town. It appears that Benjamin Heath might have got some lessons in tabletalk from his fellow Brit, as demonstrated in this hand against Simon Boss.

Heath was facing a 6,000 bet from Boss into a pot of around 10,000 on a board of {10-Spades}{5-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}. After some consideration, Heath moved enough chips forward to put his opponent all in.

There was a moment's silence before Boss spoke up: "It's hard to fold a set," he said.

"You can!" replied Heath, "You have 18k and..." (he paused to check the tournament clock), "Six levels. A whole day of fun times to be had."

Boss counted out his stack, but Heath wasn't letting up with the talking. "One fold for a whole day of fun. I think that's a very fair price," he continued.

Eventually, Boss threw a single chip forward signalling a call. Heath turned over {k-Spades}{k-Clubs} for a rivered top set. True to his word, Boss showed {6-Diamonds}{6-Spades} and started to gather his things.

"So lucky," said Boss.

"Yes," came the one-word reply from Heath.
