Mike Wattel raised to 17,000 in early position and was called by the small blind before Nicholas Heather jammed in the big for 222,000 total. Wattel tanked for a couple of minutes, shuffling chips, before he slid in calling chips. The small blind insta-mucked.
Wattel shook his head.
"I wouldn't have called if I knew you had a pair," he said.
Luck was on his side though, as the flop came to give him the lead with kings. Neither the nor the saved Heather.
