Mortensen Makes a Good Fold


On a flop reading {J-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{A-Hearts}, action checked around to Carlos Mortensen in middle position, who bet 300. Mortensen was called by a player in the cutoff and the small blind.

The {6-Hearts} fell on the turn and the player in the small blind checked to Mortensen, who bet again - this time for 900. The cutoff folded but the small blind came along.

When a {10-Diamonds} completed the board, the small blind paused and threw a 1,050 bet into the middle. Mortensen quickly showed {A-Spades}{6-Clubs} for two-pair and mucked his hand. In a friendly gesture, his opponent revealed the {5-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} for a rivered flush - confirming Mortensen's good laydown.

Despite the hit, Mortensen is still sitting above the starting stack with 35,00.
