Playing Cautious, Playing Sirous

Shamus • Level 1: 25-50, 0 ante

Many of the tables still have empty seats. For example, Sirous Jamshidi's table is currently playing five-handed. A hand there just developed in which the player under the gun limped, then Jamshidi raised to 250 from the button. The big blind came along as well.

The flop came {4-Spades}{8-Clubs}{10-Clubs}, and all three checked. The turn was the {10-Hearts}, pairing the board. It checked to Jamshidi who bet 400. The player in the big blind called, then the UTG player min-raised to 800. Both Jamshidi and the big blind called the raise.

The river brought the {2-Diamonds} and three more cautious checks. Jamshidi showed {9-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} for eights and tens, and the big blind mucked. "I can beat that," said the UTG player, turning over {9-Spades}{9-Clubs} to claim the small pot.

Chop Leah Chop, Eh?

[user101598] • Level 1: 25-50, 0 ante

Mike "goleafsgoeh" Leah is in the field today and just saw a flop of {j-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} with two other players over on Table 29. A player in the blinds checked, another fired 150 and Leah called. The opponent in the blinds released and the turn brought the {7-Hearts}. Both players checked.

The {j-Spades} rivered and Leah's opponent led for 250. Leah promptly raised to 1,250 and his opponent immediately called.

Leah: {q-Hearts}{j-Hearts}
Opponent: {k-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}

"I had ya beat!" Leah's opponent joked.

Both players split the pot and with the blinds are now slightly above starting stack.
