It's All Fun and Games

Considering what's at stake, the overall mood at the table is surprisingly light and talkative among the final five players. George Danzer (pictured) is the life of the party for the most part, with most of the conversation centering around the gregarious German pro.

At some point earlier today, Danzer's tablemates began to periodically criticize his play in jest, and that little side game has resumed once again over the past few hands. The announcer is provoking some of the chatter, and the dealers are occasionally chiding him in a good-natured way, too. Even Danzer himself has gotten in on the fun, often criticizing his own play or making jokes at his own expense.

In a recent pot, Danzer is heads-up against Esther Taylor-Brady.

Danzer:     /    
Taylor-Brady:     /    

Danzer brings-in with the  , Taylor-Brady completes with the  , and Danzer defends. Taylor-Brady bets her lead on fourth street, and Danzer calls.

"I don't think there's a word for 'fold' in German," Randy Ohel says.

Taylor-Brady bets again on fourth street, and Danzer seems reluctant to surrender. "I'm going to fold the best hand," he says, drawing a laugh from the table. He folds.

"Didn't you win this tournament before?" Todd Brunson asks, feigning disbelief.

"Yeah," Danzer confirms. "But I played...different."

Despite the needles, Danzer appears to be in his comfort zone this evening. He's the chip leader with five players remaining, looking to win this Stud Hi-Lo Championship for the second time in three years.
