For some poker players, gambling is as essential for their survival as food is. You'll see players gambling on nearly anything.
The other day Tim Phan and Roland de Wolfe were in the middle of a table redraw and saw the perfect opportunity to sneak in some extra-curricular activities.
First it was a heads up Baccarat hand for $5,000. The cards were scrambled in front of the dealer and both players reached in and picked two cards.
Phan turned over J♦
while Rollie turned up T♥
. Roland tried to draw another card but Phan stopped him and apprised him of the fact that J♦
is a natural. Game over, Tim Phan up $5,000.
The floorman was trying to get the guys moving.
"Alright guys, come on let's go," he said.
"Ok double or nothing red or black," de Wolfe blurted.
"Fine, pick a card quick," Phan said.
Roland picked a card.
"Red or black?" Phan asked frantically.
"Red!" de Wolfe said and rolled over the 3♦
"Damn, I was just up $5,000," Phan said as he gathered his chips and headed to his new table.
