Troyanovskiy Correctly Folds Two Pair on the River


Vanessa Selbst min-raised to 100,000 with {6-Clubs}{4-Clubs} and Vladimir Troyanovskiy called from the big blind with {A-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}. The latter then checked the {3-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} flop, and then check-raised to 250,000 when Selbst bet 100,000. The Team PokerStars Pro called and then Troyanovskiy slowed down with a check when he made two pair on the {A-Clubs} turn.

Selbst took the opportunity to bet 225,000, Troyanovskiy called, and the {5-Hearts} spiked on the river to give Selbst a straight. It was a bad time for Troyanovskiy to lead out, but he did so with a bet of 500,000. Selbst then announced, "All in," and Troyanovskiy's eyes shot up.

He scratched his head, looked back at his opponent and sat in heavy contemplation for several minutes. Eventually the Russian looked back at his hand and then let it go.
