It is all kicking off at Table#423! The steam is rising from the table and there is an amazing antagonistic vibe to the place that makes poker so interesting. The two players who are the focal point of the whole haze of heat are Ryan Fair and the overnight chip leader Jeff Manza.
Fair raised from the cutoff, Manza three-bet from the small blind and Fair made the call. The flop was and after a series of raises and re-raises all of the money went into the middle of the pot and it was a monster.
So Fair had flopped a set against the over pair of Manza, but he still had the diamond outs to add to his queen outs.
The diamond on the turn handing Manza the flush and Fair goes from being a 65% favourite to a 23% dog.
Fair hits quads and it all kicks off. We missed most of the commotion but there was an almighty war of words between Fair and Manza. After a while the players are still talking about the hand.
"I am over it. I don't know why you are still talking about it," said Manza.
"The game originated with talking, not behind a computer screen," said Fair.
It is obvious that Fair thinks he needs to use his verbal skills to compensate for what he perceives to be online wizardry.
"Normally I don't say a thing, but these kids are just too damn good these days, said Fair.
