Four Bets, Three Pairs, One Winner

Jerrod Ankenman, a.k.a. "Opponent"

Jerrod Ankenman opened with a raise from the cutoff, his neighbor on the button three-bet, then Richard Brodie made it four to go from the small blind. Millie Shiu then called as well from the big blind. Ankenman called, too, and the original raiser — with a laugh and a shrug — also called.

The flop came {7-Hearts}{3-Spades}{4-Diamonds}. Brodie bet, Shiu raised, Ankenman called, and the original raiser folded. Brodie shot a look over at Shiu, then called as well.

The turn was the {10-Hearts}. Brodie checked, Shiu bet, and both Ankenman and Brodie called. All three then checked the {6-Spades} river.

Brodie tabled {8-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}, then Shiu turned her cards over. "You've got the other two!" said Brodie with surprise upon seeing Shiu's {8-Hearts}{8-Spades}. They then looked up across the table as Ankenman showed his {9-Spades}{9-Diamonds} for the best pair of the group.

"Awww!" said Brodie, still grinning. "You slow roller," joshed Shiu, to which Ankenman laughingly explained he'd hesitated because the two of them had seemed so excited about their hands.

Noticing your humble scribe furiously jotting it all down, Brodie asked "You got all that?"

"You can list me as 'opponent' in that one," said Ankenman with a sheepish grin.
