Mike Postle and Thai Nguyen have been taking shots at each other's chipstacks for a while now, Nguyen moving ahead of Postle by about 10,000 chips.
As we show up, Postle bets out 2300 from the cutoff on a 2♠K♥8♠ flop and Nguyen calls from the button. Both players check the 9♠ and after a short time thinking about the K♦, Postle raps the table with his knuckles and Nguyen does the same.
"Nine," says Postle, Nguyen shakes his head and mucks.
Thai Nguyen 51,000
Mike Postle 46,000
