Marafioti Doubles Up

Matt Marafioti earlier during this WSOP

On a {Q-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} both Matt Marafioti and Yngve Steen checked to Darren Elias. Elias bet 6,100 and Marafioti raised it up to 16,600. Steen wasn't giving up, he counted out some chips and made it 38,800. Elias folded.

"Junior, junior," Marafioti sighed as he took out his earbuds, "Where are you from?"

Steen removed his earbuds and Marafioti repeated the question.

"Norway," Steen said.

"Oh, I guess it's a slowroll then," Marafioti replied.

"I call. I mean, I'm all in," Marafioti said, and Steen turned his cards over. The dealer wanted to point out that Marafioti had called, but both players turned their cards over, agreeing to run out the turn and river.

Steen showed {8-Hearts}{9-Hearts}, and Marafioti had {7-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}. The turn was the {10-Clubs}, and the river the {9-Diamonds}.

"Yes! Yes!" Marafioti shouted as one of the players pointed out to Steen that he should never says he's from either Norway, Sweden, Finland or Denmark. Steen didn't seem bothered by it all, and he still has some chips left.
