Event 17: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em

Marafioti Sticking Around

Matt Marafioti doubles

Matt Marafioti is the tightest player in the room, and we just watched him get all 125,000 of his chips into the middle preflop. Daniel Weinman had 33,000 out in front of his stack when we walked up, so there must have been another raise in front of them both. In any event, Weinman tanked and called, and Marafioti was a favorite to double. It was only then that he revealed he had one yellow T1,000 chip left behind, and he wouldn't put it in until the flop.

Weinman: {J-Diamonds} {J-Clubs}
Marafioti: {Q-Diamonds} {Q-Spades}

The board ran {6-Hearts} {6-Spades} {3-Clubs} {3-Hearts} {4-Hearts}, and Marafioti's queens hold up. As the dealer pushed him the pot, Marafioti made a quiet comment to Weinman: "Keep calling me."
