Event #58: $50,000 Poker Players Championship

Cates Tries to Get Spicy

• Level 3: 2,000-4,000, 0 ante
Daniel Cates

Pot-Limit Omaha

Dan Smith bet 12,000 on a {4-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{j-Hearts} board from the small blind, and Dan Cates potted it to 48,000. Smith tanked for a few minutes before making the call.

Cates instantly flung his hand into the muck, to a chorus of laughter from the table. Smith revealed just the {5-Diamonds} from his hand before mucking the rest of his hand.

"That was a great idea," Cates said, before declaring, "I had the spice!"
