Higgins Five-Bets Preflop

Yardley • Level 11: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante

Joel Nordkvist opened the action from the button for 4,500 and Simon Higgins raised to 12,000. Nordkvist came back with a raise to 28,000 and Higgins responded with a further raise to 60,000.

Nordkvist made the call and they went to a flop of {2-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{k-Hearts}. The two players checked and the turn card was the {2-Clubs}. Higgins went for a bet of 41,000 and Nordkvist moved all in. It would cost Higgins the rest of his chips to call. He threw down his {a-}{j-} in annoyance asking Nordkvist why he didn’t just get it all in preflop.
