2016 Cash Game Festival London

Stephensen Ships a Pot Ran Twice

Felix Stephensen

The action began innocently enough with British poker player Robert Cohen min-raising under the gun to £50. Next to action was Felix Stephensen who flat-called before the action was folded to Mikko Turtiaianen who three-bet from the small blind to £225. The big-blind folded before the other two opponents already in the pot called.

Flop: {3-Spades}{q-Hearts}{8-Clubs}

With already £700 in the pot, Turtiaianen declared himself all-in for his remaining £575 stack. Cohen folded and Stephensen quickly called. Players agreed to run it twice with the first board completing with {q-Clubs}{j-Clubs} and the second board completing with {2-Spades}{k-Hearts}.

Stephensen turned over {9-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{q-Spades}{9-Clubs} which apparently was good enough to win twice and collect the full £1,850 pot as Turtiaianen tossed his hand into the muck.

Turtiaianen, who was seen playing in big action games yesterday, is here to play and quickly reloaded his stack.

Stephensen is originally from Norway, but didn't have to travel that far to attend the Cash Game Festival London since he now lives in London. He shared with us that he heard about the Cash Game Festival and thought the action would be good.
