It's a whopper
People aren't in such a rush to get knocked out now, with only a smattering of fallers in the last hour, but that hasn't stopped the biggest pot of the tournament happening a few moments ago.A standard raise UTG to 18k from Michael Hill was called by Rupinder Bedi, only for Robert Fay to squeeze it up to 55k. The other 300k+ stack on the table, Cory Desmond went into the tank and stayed there for three whole minutes, staring into the middle distance while Fay rat-a-tatted on the table with a piece of rolled up paper."Oh, is it on me?" Desmond asked with swiftly blushing cheeks, breaking the tension in an instant.It folded back around to Bedi who asked for a count - "400 and a half" came the reply - before he flatted.The flop brought Kc7h4c, a check from Bedi and a quirky 37k bet from Fay got an inquisitive call. The 4h on the turn again saw Bedi check, with Fay firing out a more substantial 75,000, which was called after a brief ponder. Both players checked the 6s river, with Fay flipping over AQ but Bedi raking in a gigantic 366k pot.
