Sometimes it is not necessary to play long sessions to achieve a good result, something that durrrr found out when he sat down in the seven game yesterday. In only 34 hands he managed to win $147K and after that he called it a day. I guess 4 300 dollars a hand was enough to buy lunch… In other news, Patrik Antonius and Ziigmund continued their $500/$1000 PLO match and Antonius came out a $70K winner. Not a huge swing, but a decent amount of money nonetheless.
Antonius picks off Ziigmund’s river bluff. $162K pot.
Normally when you see to big hands like these, you would expect all the money to go in at some point, and frankly I am surprised that Ziigmund didn’t play his draw faster, particularly on the turn. I am sure that if Antonius had raised the flop with his set, Ziigmund would have re-raised, but apparently this pot was destined for smaller things. Actually, playing a draw slow and then bluffing the river is a nice change of pace with big draws from time to time. For your opponent it might be a lot more difficult to call the river than it is to get the money in on the flop.
Durrrr flops two pairs and avoids Townsend’s flush draw. $140K pot
Townsend and durrrr were not shy about getting their chips in on the flop, and you can understand both players in this instance. Durrrr has two pairs with an open ended straight draw and Townsend with a pair, a flush draw and a gutshot draw surely figured that he had sufficient odds to stick his chips in. As it happens, durrrr was an 11-9 favorite and this time it was sufficient for him.
Ziigmund sucks out on Antonius’s top set twice. $117K total.
Ziigmund flops quads and gets Antonius to pay him off. $66K pot.
