A late-position player shoved for 50,000 and action was on Wally Maddah in the big blind. Maddah claimed just under 70,000 chips total and, after a few moments of thought, called the all-in bet.
“Ace-10,” the at-risk player said.
“Ace-jack,” Maddah replied.
Maddah unnecessarily improved to a pair and earned the pot as well as the bustout.
Wally Maddah – 141,000 (23 bb)
