Not long ago, Greg Jensen was nursing a short stack. Now, the investment banker has made a charge and is up above the chip average.
It happened when Daniel Negreanu opened for 42,000 under the gun, Vladimir Troyanovsky three-bet to 93,000 from the cutoff, and Jensen four-bet all in to 343,000 from the small blind. Negreanu got out of the way and Troyanovsky made the call.
Jensen was dominated, but lucky for the amateur the flop delivered him salvation. Neither the turn nor river helped Troyanovsky, and he watched a good portion of his chips sent across the table.
A short time later, the same two players saw a flop of and Jensen check-called a bet of 45,000 from Troyanovsky. Jensen then check-called another bet, this time 129,000, on the turn, and then both players checked the river. Jensen tabled for rivered trips, and Troyanovsky simply mucked.
