Apparently, not only had this guy made this same move earlier in that tournament, but he reportedly had made the same move several times in a previous tourney. I couldn't believe that Yanayt actually made the call knowing all that.
I normally don't like to comment about another players style, tells or habits during a game. But that's just because I don't like helping the competition out by giving them free information that I had to work to get. I definitely don't think anyone should be commenting about what someone else did or does, or how they play in the middle of a hand. Here, however, I make an exception. Like JusSumguy says, it just goes to show how despised angle shooting is. It's like the tourney director knew what he was doing and knew it was wrong and wanted to penalize him for it. But since there is really no way to prove that Freitez had done it on purpose (except to know that he has done it previously), the only way he could really penalize him was to let Yanayt know that he had done the same thing before when he was holding the nuts.
