Smith Snatches Big Pot From Santoni

• Taso 23: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante
Dan Smith picked up a large pot.

We caught up with this hand on the turn between Dan Smith and Jean-Louis Santoni. The board showed {7-Hearts} {7-Clubs} {6-Spades} {6-Clubs} and Santoni bet 145,000. Smith called after a bit and the river came {5-Spades}.

It took Santoni quite a bit of time to consider his action on the river. So much in fact John Esposito asked, "Is it someone's turn here?"

Santoni finally checked and Smith bet 263,000. Santoni took just a moment to fold.
