When we arrived, the board was already out in a battle of the blinds. With the board reading , the small blind checked to Oliver Price in the big blind.
Price bet 59,000 into a pot of 55,000.
The small blind thought about it for a bit and said “Nice bet!” before he eventually called.
Price indicated he didn’t have much, but his neighbor wasn’t showing his cards just yet.
Price eventually showed for the missed straight draw. The small blind tabled for second pair and took down the pot.
