We just witnessed Will "The Thrill" Failla in all his outspoken glory over in the white section of the Pavilion Room.
A player on the button opened for 525, the small blind called, and Failla in the big blind, started nudging the dealer who was discussing the break and he said, "Dealer, worry about the break later, we got a big pot goin on here." Failla put his final 1,225 in the pot (he had two lammers behind), the button re-potted, and another animated character in the small blind said, "ALRIGHT, if you guys want me, you got me, I pot I'm all in" Everyone at the table cheered and Failla said, "that's right, put it in you filthy animal."
Right before the flop came down Failla looked over at this reporter and asked, "Benjamin, who do you think has the nuts right now?" Seeing as every event I've seen Will "The Thrill" in he's gone deep, I had to assume it was him.
The flop came down and Failla called for the King of Spades. Sure enough, the turn came Failla said, "THAT'S RIGHT, make sure PokerNews knows I called for the king of spades right there." The river came to eliminate the possibility of a low and Failla banged the table and cheered, "YEAHHHH, SHIP IT ALLLL OVER HERE."
Jonathan Aguiar then jokingly called for the floor saying, "Floor, can we get a 10 round penalty over here for excessive, excessive celebration?? This guy won't calm down."
Failla was up to 6,600 after the hand, but he didn't stop there though as he said, "Real nice hand there" (talking to the small blind and rolling his eyes) Aguiar then chimed in, "Yeah, the nine is a real important card in 8 or better."
It was all in good fun though and the table is all laughs and having a good time tearing it up and playing some PLO 8.
