It’s seemingly a dream scenario. You flop backside set two different gamers on Day 1 of the $10,000 World Series of Poker foremost occasion.
This was JJ Liu’s scenario on Day 1B of the 2021 foremost occasion Friday afternoon in opposition to two-time WSOP bracelet winner and Card Player columnist Steve Zolotow and Perry Friedman. But Liu’s dream of holding 2-2 on a flop of Ok82 quickly become a nightmare situation.
In the fourth degree of the day, with blinds of 300-500 with a 500 huge blind ante, Zolotow led out for six,000 and was raised to 22,000 by Friedman. Liu cold-called and Zolotow tank-folded his high pair high kicker.
There was 59,200 within the pot heading to the flip, which was the 4. Friedman didn’t cease betting as he pushed 152,000 into the center. It was a wager of practically 3 times the scale of the pot, greater than 300 huge blinds, and greater than the roughly 130,000 Liu had left in her stack.
“That many?” requested Liu.
“This might be the only bet size she’ll fold to,” stated PokerGO commentator and poker professional Jamie Kerstetter.
Kerstetter was proper as Liu solely took about 20 seconds earlier than tossing her hand into the muck. Friedman went on to complete the day with 195,500, good for a top-20 chip stack, whereas Liu was only some spots behind him with 180,200.
