Mothes Chips Up; Kalkan Chips Down

zedmaster84 • Level 3: 200-400, 400 ante

The dealer had just rushed away the board and Pierre Mothes was shipped a seizable pot even though his {a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs} was only good enough for ace-king high on a queen-high board.

According to Mothes, he had three-bet preflop and continued for 2,500 on a {q-}{8-}{3-} flop with two spades. His opponent raised to 7,500 and Mothes called. The {8-Clubs} turn was checked and Mothes called a bet worth 17,000 on the {5-} river to get shown {10-Hearts}{6-Hearts} for a bluff gone wrong.

While Mothes chipped up, the trend for Ismail Kalkan went into the exact opposite direction. Facing the shove by Patricke Zehnder on the {k-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{4-Spades}{5-Spades} river, Kalkan reluctantly folded and was shown the {10-Clubs}{10-Spades} for a set of tens.
