Zimnan Ziyard is thinking so hard we can hear his neural circuitry whirring away from the rail. At this moment it really does look like a battle for second spot between Hauke Heseding and John Taramas.
Here is the action from the last fifteen minutes:
- Taramas nervously moved his feet about and twiddled with the peak of his cap before moving all-in from the button for 440,000. Heseding was seated in the small blind and he made the cold call off a stack of around 2.1 million.
"Why was it such a tough decision?" Ziyard asked Heseding before moving all-in.
Heseding folded and Ziyard flipped over while Taramas flipped over . The board ran out and as Taramas doubled up, a large percentage of the rail were lauging at his decision to move all in with such a weak hand. Ziyard looked unpeturbed and knew exactly what he was doing.
"I just didn't want YOU to have those chips," Ziyard said to Heseding.
- Ziyard raised to 160,000 on the button and folded after Heseding moved all-in from the big blind.
- Ziyard moved all-in from the small blind and Taramas folded.
- Ziyard limped in the small blind and Taramas checked. The flop was and both players checked. The turn was the and a 125,000 bet won the pot from Ziyard.
