Sorel Plays It Safe


We came upon this one with about 80,000 in the middle, the board showing {10-Spades}{4-Spades}{6-Clubs}{8-Spades}, and Sorel Mizzi facing an all-in shove for 289,000 by his opponent sitting to his right. Mizzi had almost exactly that left behind — just a touch less — and so the decision whether or not to call was a crucial one.

Mizzi tanked for a couple of minutes, finally tossing his cards away. "You have a set?" he asked his neighbor, who initially resisted answering. Mizzi then offered further incentive for him to tell.

"I had {10-}{8-}," Mizzi said, at which his opponent flipped over his hand — {A-Spades}{K-Spades}. "Wow," said Mizzi, who then offered a fist bump of congratulations to his neighbor.
