Action folded to the player in the hijack seat. He raised to 8,000 with a little less than 150,000 behind. The player on the button, flat-called with approximately 68,000 behind. Then play folded to Ronnie Bardah in the big blind. Bardah, who finished 24th in this event last year for over $317,000, paused to think and then reraised to 27,000. The hijack seat folded, but then the button went into the tank.
The button broke down his stack to count it out, having just under 68,000 left. He then stacked up in one tower and slid them into the middle, announcing, "I'm all in."
"Call!" snapped off Bardah.
Bardah tabled the and had his opponent's crushed. The board ran out clean for Bardah with the falling and he won the pot.
Bardah had bluffed off some chips prior to this hand to lose about 80,000 of his stack, but this pot put him right back at about the 300,000 mark as the night closes out.
