Victor Cianelli and Ryan Fair just played a 1.7 million chip pot that saw Cianelli score a full double up. We only caught the river action, but one of the camera crew members caught up up on the action after the flop.
On a flop of , Cianelli checked to Fair, who fired out 50,000. Cianelli then check raised it to 150,000, and Fair tossed in the call. The turn brought the , and Cianelli fired out a huge bet of 250,000. Fair once again made the call, and the hit the river. Cianelli moved all in for 446,000, and Fair immediately shot up out of his chair, which fell over in the process.
Fair picked it back up, then went deep into the tank. He thought it over for at least two minutes before he stood up yet again. All the while, Cianelli sat as still as a statue with his arms extended in front of him on the table, and Fair announced "Sorry guys this may take a while." Despite this warning, Fair only thought for about another minute before he said "call."
Cianelli showed for a set of fours, and Fair shook his head and mucked his hand. Because it was an all-in situation, his hand had to be tabled: for a flopped open ended straight draw that turned into running two pair. Fair shipped most of his chips over to Cianelli, dropping him to 190,000. Meanwhile, Cianelli has catapulted into the top five chip counts, as he now has 1.75 million.
Fair was eliminated a short while after.
