Hands #49-51: "Everyone Loves a Chopped Pot!"

Webjoker • Level 16: 15,000-30,000, 5,000 ante

Hand 49: Erik Seidel moved in from the button with the {A-Diamonds}{9-Spades} for 450,000. Steve O'Dwyer in the small blind asked for a count with {A-Hearts}{8-Clubs} and reshoved. Thorel folded.

The flop came {Q-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{3-Hearts} which left little room for chopped pots. But the {2-Diamonds} on the turn improved those odds drastically, and the {K-Hearts} on the river made for a split.

"Everyone loves a chopped pot!" James Hartigan sang alone as co-commentator Lex Veldhuis failed to join in.

Hand 50: Steve O'Dwyer on the button with {Q-Spades}{9-Clubs} raised to 75,000. Byron Kaverman in the big blind called with {K-Clubs}{6-Hearts} and checked on {9-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{K-Spades}. O'Dwyer bet 105,000 into 185,000 and Kaverman called.

The {7-Spades} on the turn did nothing and Kaverman checked again. O'Dwyer waited till he had just 3 seconds left and then moved in for 553,000 into the 395,000 pot. Kaverman folded.

Hand 51: Steve O'Dwyer opened {7-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} under the gun and he took down the blinds and antes.
