Dever, Ali Tabatabai & Dentale
Event 8 Champion Mike Dentale (Brooklyn, NY) goes deep in the tank when faced with his tournament life. The board is 6♥ 8♣ 9♥ J♥ when Dentale bets 20k into a 30k pot and sees Cathy Dever (Lancaster, PA) move all-in.
Dentale is at risk and shows the table 8♠ 9♠ for two pairs. After a few minutes Dever agrees to show her hand if Dentale folds, leaving himself with 111k.
After a few more minutes Dentale folds and Dever shows Q♠ 10♣ for a turned straight.
"Unbelievable," says Dentale, who took home $31,716 for his win, "I don't play a hand for 19 hours and she has the nuts."
We're still 10 spots from the money and nobody has busted in the last 20 minutes.
