Aloor Sends Purtle Into the Tank
Action was on the river with a large pot of at least 700,000 in the middle. The board was a wet looking 4 of Spade, 9 of Spade, 8 of Spade, 10 of Clubs, q of Spade, . Purtle, who was in middle position, was facing an all in jam from Sharon Aloor on the button who had about 530,000 behind.
Purtle held his hards in front of him and slid them back and forth in his hand while thinking. After a few minutes the clock was called. “Sick river” he said before the floor came over to countdown the clock to zero and his hand was declared dead.
Aloor took in the large pot.
Sharon Aloor – 1,370,000
Bryan Purtle – 410,000
