Silver and Gold


A recent walk through of the silver and gold sections lead to Bryan Micon's table where he was getting involved in a hand.

Micon raised it up to 400 preflop from the hijack, and managed to get a caller in the cut-off player. The rest of the table folded and it was two to the flop. The dealer spread three cards and they came {a-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}, both players checked and it was off to the turn.

The {3-Diamonds} on fourth street saw Micon bet out 550 and the cut-off immediately move all in, a bet that would put the shorter stacked Micon all in. Micon went into the tank for a few moments, and came out of it thinking a call was the best option. He plopped his chips in the middle and flipped over {K-}{k-}. Micon's opponent countered by flipping over {K-Diamonds}{q-Spades} for a flopped straight. Micon now needed a queen for a chop pot, but alas he received no such luck as the {8-Spades} rolled off the deck for the river.

A section away Darryl Fish was three-betting to 1,200 after his short stacked opponent made it 450 preflop. The table folded around and Fish's opponent moved all in for 2,600. Fish made the call, and was in for some bad news.

Fish: {8-}{8-}
Opponent: {Q-}{Q-}

The board came {5-Spades}{9-Spades}{10-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{j-Diamonds} and with that Fish sent over a chunk of chips. Fish still sits with over 4,000 and has plenty of day left to build up his stack.
