Vanessa Rousso is on David Tuchman's Christmas List

• Level 6: 250-500, 50 ante
David Tuchman (from Day 1)

A player in early position opened to 1,200 and Eric Ethans made it 2,700 to go. David Tuchman in middle position reraised to 6,300 and Vanessa Rousso called out of the small blind. The early position player folded, then Ethans asked the dealer how much the reraise was and then looked at Tuchman.

"How much you have left?" he asked.

"About 30… 31," answered Tuchman.

"I raise," said Ethans after a few seconds. "I'm all in." He tossed a large stack of T5,000 chips into the middle.

"Oh, wow," said Tuchman. "Vanessa, you made this a lot harder."

Tuchman stood up and Ethans asked him "got anything?" Tuchman looked at him and said "I wouldn't be Hollywooding if I didn't have anything." The table laughed at Tuchman's response.

"Aaaaahhhhhh," said the WSOP live stream commentator, taking his hat off, rubbing his hands through his hair, and then putting the hat back on backwards.

"God," Tuchman moaned as Rousso sat there looking the two over. Ethans and Tuchman eyed one another, slight smiles coming over their faces. "This is what I wanted," said Tuchman while looking directly at Ethans.

Ethans leaned back, laughed, and said "got 'em sweating," adding a loud "Boom!" for emphasis. A friend of his looked over and Ethans pointed at all of his chips in the middle. "You like that," he said, adding "I kind of got off to a rough start. This table has been pushing me around."

Finally, Tuchman let his hand go, as did Rousso. Ethans looked at Rousso and said "you show and I'll show." Rousso showed {8-}{8-} and Ethans turned over {A-}{A-}. Tuchman let out a huge sigh of relief, saying he had {A-}{K-} and then telling Rousso "thank you, you're on my Christmas list. If you don't call there he gets all my chips."
