Check Back From a Wimpy Kid

Webjoker • Level 2: 100-200, 25 ante

Behzad Ahadpour limped in under the gun and Max Silver, involved in a conversation with his neighbor Scott Seiver, casually raised to 800 from the button. Big blind Dan Shak called, Ahadpour folded.

The flop came {4-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} and Shak check-called a bet of 1,000.

With the {A-Hearts} hitting the turn, Shak checked again. This time around, Silver bet 3,000. Again, Shak called.

The {10-Diamonds} on the river completed the board and Shak checked. Silver thought about it for about a minute and a half or so before checking behind.

Shak showed {8-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} for the nuts.

"Ooh!" Silver said, "Big check back!"

Silver showed {A-Spades}{Q-Diamonds} and Shak said: "You're too good."

"I wanted to bet the river but I was too scared. That's not good, that's being a wimp." Silver said, now with an ever bigger smile.
