Two Pair for Voulgaris


On the {A-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{2-Spades} board, Haralabos Voulgaris bet 11,000. Ferit Gabriellson made the call and the river completed the board with the {7-Diamonds}. Voulgaris bet 30,000 and Gabriellson began to tank.

After a couple of minutes of tanking from Gabriellson, Voulgaris leaned forward and extended his cards towards the muck with his right arm, but kept them held by his hand. He put his forehead down on his left arm that was rested on the table. Gabriellson looked at him funny and then asked, "What are you doing?"

"I'm just trying to speed up the process, buddy. I'm either going to muck my hand or turn it over and I want to make it as fast as possible," responded Voulgaris. "Take as long as you want, but I just want to speed it up."

Eventually, Gabriellson made the call and Voulgaris turned over the {A-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} for two pair. Gabriellson mucked and Voulgaris won the pot.

Maimone's Straight Beats Phillips


From the button, Carter Phillips raised to 13,500. In the big bind, Nick Maimone made the call and the flop came down {J-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{2-Hearts}. Maimone checked and Phillips bet 16,000. Maimone called.

The turn was the {A-Diamonds} and both players checked to see the {3-Hearts} land on the river. Maimone checked and Phillips bet 30,000. Maimone fired back with a check-raise to 120,000 and Phillips snapped.

Maimone turned over the {6-Hearts}{5-Hearts} for a six-high straight — a.k.a. the nuts. Phillips showed just the {5-Clubs} and mucked his other card.

Maimone moved to 670,000 and Phillips dropped to 536,500.

After the hand, Matt Marafioti said he also folded a five and said he had jack-five of spades. "You really took that long to fold?" said Haralabos Voulgaris, citing that Marafioti took a bit of time to fold preflop.

"I didn't take that long," came back Marafioti.

"Really? You looked at your cards 10 different ways," finished Voulgaris.
