Oliver's OOP Float Doesn't Work

donpeters • Level 33: 120,000-240,000, 20,000 ante

Galen Hall raised from the button to 520,000 holding the {A-Spades}{A-Hearts}. Chris Oliver called from the big blind with the {10-Clubs}{8-Hearts}. The flop came down {K-Spades}{J-Hearts}{3-Spades} and Oliver whiffed. He checked to Hall and this one looked like it would end after Hall fired 650,000. Oliver made the call though, opting for the out-of-position float.

The turn brought the {3-Hearts} and Oliver checked. Hall fired 1.475 million and Oliver gave it up, not choosing to go any further with the hand.

Hall Bluffs Unsuccessfully

SantanaBandana • Level 33: 120,000-240,000, 20,000 ante

Chris Oliver had the button and opened with {a-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}. Hall called with {a-Diamonds}{3-Spades} and the flop came {2-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}. Both players checked.

The turn was the {q-Spades} and Hall checked. Oliver fired 675,000 and Hall check-raised to 1.7 million. Oliver tank-called.

The river was the {k-Diamonds} and Hall checked a third time. Oliver threw out a value-bet worth 905,000 and surprisingly Hall check-raised again! This time the amount was 2.3 million and again Oliver made the call.

The cards were opened and the pot was shipped to Oliver, extending his chip lead.
