Not long ago, the table had folded around to Jeremy Allen in the big blind. "That's the first walk I've gotten all tournament," he said with a note of surprise, turning over his and grabbing the small pot.
"This guy yesterday was raising me every single time it was just me and him," Allen continued, tipping the brim of his cowboy hat upwards. "I mean every time, he would just fire away. And I'd call him, too. I don't think he realized just how big a game this really is. I mean that's what you do in your buddy's basement, but not here."
Allen has continued to maintain his big stack thus far today, as well as the banter at the table.
