Big Pot/Big Call

$2000 + $200 Championship Event
$500,000 Guaranteed Prize Pool (Day 1A)

Now that the dust as settled at Table 4, there's a chance to pick up other action.

At Table 1, Andrew McFadden, from the hi-jack bets 600, Joseph Altomonte (W. Paterson, NJ) calls, as does a player who wants to remain anonymous, so we'll call him "Alex."

The flop is 10 9 8. McFadden bets 2200, both players call.
Turn: 2♣. McFadden bets 5200, call, call.
River: 6
♣. McFadden all-in for 13k.

Altomonte tanks and folds, while "Alex," who's already counting out chips, makes a quick call.

"Alex" shows A 10 for a pair of 10s and McFadden mucks, which stuns Altomonte.

"I had that beat," Altomonte says, while pointing to Alex's pair of 10s.

"One of the greatest calls of all-time," says Charles Minter (Yarley, PA), who's at the table and watches Alex rake in the 24k pot.

While the table presses for more information, Altomonte says, "don't worry about it, I had it beat." And then looking at the Gorilla says, "just write seat 2 is a donk."

This coming from a guy who knows with a player behind him that he has to fold, independent of the results, and finished 4th in the Event 3 Deep Stack.

Level 4 (100/200/25 ante) is underway.
