Champ: 10 Minute Tank

$2500 + $200 Championship NLH

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.
