will_shill • Level 6: 250-500, 75 ante

With the board reading {k-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{5-Hearts} Achille Voltolina had bet 8,000 and Louis Salter had moved all in over the top for just under 15,000.

Achille Voltolina, who finished second in the senior's event earlier this week for €24,930, has a peculiar habit of humming and talking to himself as he ponders his decisions. In this hand he lined out each chip required to make the call according to their denomination. The dealer noticed and inquired as to whether he was in fact calling.

"No, these here," said Voltolina, with an over-the-top hand gesture to where his chips were in relation to the betting line.

In the end, Voltolina sang along to himself as he stacked each set of chips on top of one another and called.

Salter showed {k-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} for two pair, and Voltolina turned over {a-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} for ace-high and a flush draw, and attempted to place the {9-Hearts} in the space where the river was to be dealt. The dealer moved the card and dealt the river, which was the {8-Hearts}. Salter got to his feet and shook Voltolina's hand and exited the tournament room.
