Zimcosky Bluffs Lanier for Huge Pot

mnuwwarah • Level 20: 20,000-40,000, 4,000 ante
Brian Zimcosky isn't afraid to make moves.

Allen Lanier opened to 85,000 in the cutoff, and Brian Zimcosky three-bet to 190,000 in the small blind. Lanier made the call, and the two took in a {4-Spades}{q-Spades}{4-Hearts} flop. Zimcosky fired a continuation-bet of 220,000, and Lanier raised to 440,000. Zimcosky responded by shoving all in, putting Lanier's last 491,000 at risk.

Lanier went deep into the tank.

"I didn't put in half of my stack with top pair just to fold," he muttered to himself.

Finally, however, he did decide to fold, showing the {q-Hearts}. The players at the table clamored for Zimcosky to show, and he obliged: {j-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}.
