Makes No Sense To Shak

Yardley • Level 7: 250-500, 50 ante
Dan Shak

Dan Shak bet 6,000 into a pot of 12,000 on the turn of a board showing {4-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}. Achille Voltolina, his only opponent sat to his left, moved all in for 24,000. Shak tried to make sense of it.

“Makes no sense at all.” Shak said and contemplated both his opponent and the board for a while. “No sense. How can you have a three in your hand? Set?” The confusion was complete and a frustrated Shak showed the {4-Diamonds} and mucked his hand.

Encouraged to “Show the bluff.” Voltolina turned over his {q-Hearts}{q-Clubs}. “I folded the winner.” Shak insisted claiming his other card was a {4-} before trying to question his opponent on whether he was worried about the straightening board on the turn. The language barrier proved to be an obstacle too far but Voltolina seemed to be saying he had over cards and was not worried at all.

“It made no sense.” Shak appealed to the table and finally got a, “No sense.” agreement from another player.
