Richards and Welko Trading Blows

BrandonTemple • Level 9: 500-1,000, 1,000 ante

Hand #1:

John Richards raised to 2,400 from middle position, and was called by Craig Welko in the cutoff and Jerod Smith on the button.

Action checked through the {10-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds} flop, and Richards bet 3,500 on the {j-Hearts} turn. Welko folded.

Hand #2:

John Richards opened for 2,400 for the second straight hand, and Craig Welko three-bet to 9,500 from the hijack.

"Ninety-five?" Richards asked the dealer, who confirmed the amount. Richards gave it a moment's thought, then folded.
