Polk Shoves On Yong

donpeters • Level 10: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

On the first hand of the nine-handed final table, Phil Ivey raised from under the gun to take down the pot.

On the second hand, Doug Polk opened from middle position to 44,000. He was called by Richard Yong on the button and Ivey in the big blind before the dealer dealt the {K-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}{9-Spades} flop. Ivey checked, and Polk bet 68,000. Yong called, and Ivey folded.

The turn was the {5-Diamonds}, and Polk sized up the stack of Yong. He then moved all in, an effective bet worth about 260,000, and Yong folded.
