A player in middle position opened for 250 and action folded around to another player on the button, who three-bet to 850. Dwyte Pilgrim called cold from the big blind and the original raiser called as well for a three-way pot.
The flop came and both Pilgrim and the original raiser checked to the three-bettor, who made it 875 to go. Pilgrim responded by tossing out a single 5,000-denomination chip and announing, "Three-thousand," for a raise. The player in middle position folded, as did the player on the button after thinking for a bit over a minute.
"Just so you guys know - I don't give anyone more than two minutes to act on a hand before I call the clock," Pilgrim said. "I like to play fast."
Pilgrim is sitting on 24,500.
