Level 21: 15,000/30,000 (30,000)
Glen Gaines opened for 65,000 from the cutoff and was called by Sascha Manns from the button and Alessandro La Cava from the small blind before Damien Gayer squeezed with a three-bet to 270,000. Gaines folded before Manns four-bet to 665,000. La Cava folded and Gayer went into the tank.
A couple of minutes later, Gayer five-bet jammed for more than the 1,800,000 or so Manns had in his stack to start the hand. The table remained super silent as Manns tanked for about 5 minutes. It would have been for the likely chip lead if Manns made the call but he eventually opted to fold and muck his cards. Gayer was awarded the pot and also opted to not show his cards.
Damien Gayer - 2.9 million
Sascha Manns - 1.125 million
