Alex Alashkar Makes Sick Call

BenLudlow • Level 7: 300-600, 75 ante

From early position, Alex Alashkar raised the pot to 2,550. The hand folded around to a player in the big blind who raised to 9,550 which at the time was more than half of his stack. Alashkar tanked for about a minute and called.

The flop came {6-Clubs}{7-Spades}{4-Clubs} and after almost no thought the big blind player went all in for his remaining 7,000. Alashkar snap called and flipped over {Q-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}. The big blind said, "Wow, sick call" and turned over {K-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}

After the {J-Hearts} came on the turn, the players were set to split the pot and Alashkar confidently boasted about his read saying, “I knew you’d make a move on the flop, I just had a hunch.”

The river came an inconsequential {10-Diamonds} and the players split the pot and moved on.

Alashkar is sitting middle of the pack with about 30,000.
