Hoa Vu opens from late position to 7,000 and gets one caller in Jesse Jones from the big blind. The dealer spreads a flop of 5♥5♦4♦. Jones checks and Vu continues for 20,000. Jones calls.
The turn is the J♠. Jones checks it over to Vu, who bets 40,000--leaving himself 52,000 behind.
While Jones is thinking over his options, Vu volunteers, "I'm ready to go."
With that, Jones check-raises to 110,000.
Vu goes into the tank for a full minute. "I think you have me," he says.
"I do have you," Jones replies.
A few more seconds tick by and Vu lets his hand go. "That jack scared me. Nice bet."
Jesse Jones - 467,000
Hoa Vu - 52,000
