Event #5: €1,100 MONSTER STACK No-Limit Hold'em

Delahunty Isn't Good in Maths

poolshir • Level 12: 1,000-2,000, 2,000 ante

The board read {2-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{a-Clubs} and Viktor Kovachev had checked in the big blind. Ron Eldar did the same in mid-position. Darren Delahunty shoved and Kovachev asked for a count. The dealer confirmed Delahunty had 47,900 behind. Kovachev tanked, cut out calling chips, counted the remainder of his stack, and then decided to also shove. Eldar looked at his cards, hesitated for a bit and then announced the fold.

Delahunty flung his cards over the line aggressively and got up from his chair.

Darren Delahunty: {A-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}
Viktor Kovachev: {A-Spades}{Q-Clubs}

They had both turned a pair of aces but Delahunty was ahead with the king -kicker.

The river completed the board with the {9-Spades} for Delahunty to double up.

"Can someone tell me how many big blinds 47,000 is?!" Delahunty asked out loud while looking a bit angry.

"47,000 divided by 2,000..." Refael Dahan replied.

"Is it a real question, or are you joking?" Danny Covyn asked.

"I am bad at math, I asked him," Delahunty said to Dahan while pointing at Covyn, "but he refused to tell me".

"I'm sorry, I thought you were joking" Covyn apologized.

"No, I'm bad at maths, I needed to know," Delahunty said, while angrily stacking up his chips.

Danny Covyn be 160,000 -22,000
Darren Delahunty gb 105,000 105,000
