Staniukynas Sends Decataldo Into the Tank

ajlamers • Level 21: 8,000-16,000, 16,000 ante

Picking up the action on the turn with the board reading {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{5-Spades}, Flavio Decataldo tossed in a bet of 75,000 into a pot of nearly 200,000. Rytas Staniukynas check-raised all in for 353,000, putting Decataldo to the test for nearly the rest of his chips.

Decataldo sat in the tank for well over three minutes, pleading for Staniukynas to show his cards if he folded. Decataldo eventually succumbed to the pressure from Staniukynas and flashed his {k-Spades}{j-Diamonds} before they hit the muck. As the pot was pushed to Staniukynas, he turned over the {5-Hearts}, leaving Decataldo pondering his decision.
