GTO Talk

[user101598] • Level 21: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante
Talal Shakerchi doubles

Talal Shakerchi moved all in for 320,000 from the small blind, and the action was on Canadian Jason Lavallee in the big. He sat quietly for the better part of a minute, re-checked his cards, then sighed.

"You might've gotten me with that GTO talk yesterday," he said.

Shakerchi chuckled.

"GTO" is short for game theory optimal, and it seems as if Lavallee was convinced that Shakerchi could be shoving light, because he called and tabled {q-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}.

Shakerchi wasn't as light as Lavallee expected, turning over {k-Diamonds}{6-Spades}.

The flop, turn, and rive came out {7-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{a-Clubs}{3-Spades}, and the defending EPT London high roller champion doubled to 658,000 chips. Lavallee fell to 830,000.
