Holden Four-Bet Shoves, Bounahra Finds a Fold


Samuel Holden min-raised to 600,000 from the hijack seat, Badih Bounahra three-bet to 1.7 million from the small blind, and the action folded back to Holden. He tanked, then four-bet shoved for 10.21 million. Bounahra sat back in his chair with his left hand covering his mouth while the tournament director counted Holden's stack.

Once the amount was confirmed, Bounahra re-sweated his cards, looked into the stands, then sweated them once more. He asked for the count again, the tournament director gave it to him, and he started counting his own stack. Bounahra was tossing and turning in his swirly chair like it was 4 a.m. and he couldn't sleep, then finally stood up, putting his hands on his hips.

After less than about a minute of standing, Bounahra sat back down and unhappily mucked his hand.
