Table 25 has been a happy hunting ground for Jason Koon. The same cannot be said for James Dempsey. The two just clashed in a pot where a third player was all-in, and it didn't end well for the Brit.
We reached the action after the flop had fallen as and the small blind had moved all-in for 23,100. Dempsey was in early position and raised up to 49,300. Koon called from the button and the action passed to the turn. Dempsey slowed to a check and called when the American bet 30,000.
The river brought another queen in the and Dempsey checked. Koon bet 55,000 and this bet really got under Dempsey's skin. He went into the tank for a few minutes and tried to reason (sometime mumbling thoughts) what was going on. His instincts seemed to tell him to fold but he threw in the calling chips.
Koon opened , beating Dempsey's .
"How did you get there?" asked Dempsey. "I fold if it doesn't come a queen."
