Event #7: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em Championship

Set Mining

Olivier Busquet

A player in early position limped as did short-stacked Olivier Busquet in middle position. The button then raised to 1,600, the small blind called, and the two limpers came along for the ride. It's worth noting that Busquet started the hand with around 6,000 and committed nearly a fourth of his chips preflop.

The small blind was first to act and led out for 4,400 when the flop fell {3-Spades}{10-Spades}{2-Clubs}. The early position player folded and Busquet immediately moved all in for 300 more. Only the small blind made the call.

Busquet: {2-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}
Small Blind: {K-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}

Busquet had flopped a set and more than doubled as the {6-Clubs} turn and {J-Hearts} river changed nothing. The table chuckled at the fact that Busquet had committed so many chip to set mine, a humor not lost on Busquet.
