Gregg Check-Raising

Anthony Gregg and Juan Manuel Pastor were heads up with the board reading {7-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}. Gregg checked, Pastor fired 12,700, and Gregg called. The turn was the {k-Spades}, and Gregg checked again. Pastor fired a second bullet - this one was worth 27,000 - and Gregg check-raised to 65,500. Pastor tanked for a very long time, so long that someone called the clock.

A tournament staff member came to the table, and in the middle of the one-minute countdown Pastor folded. Gregg raked in the pot, and now has more than 180,000 chips.
