Paul Allen and Adam Maxwell are two local poker professionals, familiar with one another's game not only in tournaments, but also cash games here at Dusk Till Dawn. The two spent most of yesterday butting heads in big pots, and have drawn the same table again today.
It didn't take long for the two of them to begin battling again, with Allen opening Maxwell's big blind to 400,000. Maxwell made the call and the two of them took a flop, which they both checked. It went check-check again on the turn, with Allen firing a big 1,300,000 bullet on the river when checked to once more.
Maxwell immediately let out a chuckle of resignation and went deep into the tank. "Did you make the nut flush, Sheldon?" he asked, referencing Paul Allen's similarity to the Big Bang Theory character Sheldon Cooper. After another 10 seconds or so, Maxwell sighed and flicked in an orange chip to signify a call.
"Nut flush," declared Allen as he tabled . Maxwell helicoptered his cards into the muck as Allen dragged a big pot.
