Michael Newman used his verbal skills to win a hand against Matas Cimbolas. He opened to 180,000 and called a three-bet from Cimbolas to 550,000. They checked the 6s5d5c flop and Newman bet 200,000 after the 3h turn. Newman began talking while Cimbolas thought about it.

He eventually called and Newman quickly bet 400,000 after the 3d river.

“Ace high is no good,” Newman said. “I’m telling you.”

Cimbolas waited a few minutes, smiled, and mucked his hand.

Newman flipped over king-high KhJh to get a round of applause from everyone, including Cimbolas.

Michael Newman – 3,500,000 (44 bb)
Matas Cimbolas – 3,850,000 (48 bb)
