Cada Can't Hero-Call

Joe Cada opened to 3,000 from middle position, and a player on the button called. The flop fell {a-Spades}{j-Hearts}{8-Spades}, and Cada continued for 4,000. His opponent called.

The turn was the {4-Clubs}, and Cada fired another bullet - this one was worth 11,500. His opponent again called.

The {2-Clubs} completed the board, and Cada slowed down, checking to his opponent who immediately reached for orange T5,000 chips and fired 20,000 into the pot. Cada screwed up his face, and re-checked his cards. He cut out enough chips to make the call, and shuffled them while he studied the board.

Eventually, he mucked, and the player proudly tabled {10-}{9-}{5-}{4-} for a pair of fours and a busted straight draw.

"I almost called with a pair of eights," Cada lamented.

Cada couldn't pull the trigger, and his stack slipped to around 60,000 chips.
