We caught up with the action after Will Failla had already opened from early position. Action folded around to Seong Bag, who three-bet to 44,000. It was folded back to Failla, who pushed all in for about 380,000 total. That's when the banter began.
"I'll take your 44 [thousand], I don't want to you bust you - don't do something stupid," Failla said.
"I think we have the same hand," Bag replied.
"That's impossible. I'll lay you ten-to-one, my one thousand to your one hundred that we don't have the same hand."
"I think you have pocket queens," Bag said.
"I wouldn't risk my tournament on pocket queens."
After a bit more banter, both agreed that they would show if Bag folded, which he did. The ten-to-one bet was never finalized.
Bag tabled and Failla flipped over after the hand was already over.
"See?" Failla said.
Failla is up to 425,000 following the hand, while Bag slipped a bit to 420,000.
