Benjamin Parker opened to 50,000 from under the gun, and George Danzer called on the button. Both players drew one.

Parker checked, and Danzer announced, "Eighty-five thousand."

Parker tanked for the better part of two minutes, then called. Danzer fanned {9-}{7-}{5-}{4-}{3-}, and Parker unhappily mucked.

A Tense Moment

Posted 2012-07-07 GMT-6

George Danzer opened with a raise only to have Mike Watell come over the top for 125,000 total. Danzer replied by four-betting his entire stack for 473,000 total and Wattel was clearly distraught.

"What? No glasses?", Wattel asked Danzer noticing that the sunglasses Danzer usually wore during hands were absent.

Eventually Wattel made what seemed to be a painful fold and the pot was shipped the way of Danzer.
