Daniel Cates was in the big blind and an early position player opened for 2,700. The raiser picked up one caller and action passed to Cates. He called and went to the flop with two opponents.
The flop came and Cates sat silent. He quietly said all in and had to repeat it to the dealer. The original raiser thought for few moments before asking Cates how much he had.
An obviously annoyed Cates said, "I keep them (chips) in stacks of 20." And to Cates defense his stack was easily countable and pushed forward.
The original raiser called, the third opponent folded and Cates tabled . The raiser tabled and watched the board finish . Cates doubled with his pair of jacks is around 26,000.
