Event 12: Betley Spikes Heartrate

$170 + $30 Deep Stack Double Play NLH (2 Re-entry)

Mike Betley was all-in with pocket Tens and was racing against a player with AQ.  Mike couldn't look and turned away from the table.  When a player said "flush", Mike looked back to see that it was not the case.  "My heart normally beats normally at 60 beats per minute, [that's a great resting heart rate] but it just spiked up to about 180."
