Spinks Is Confused


The cutoff limped in, and Jon Spinks raised to 1,250 on the button. He got a call from the cutoff, and the dealer fan out a flop of {10-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}. Both players checked, and the turn brought the {10-Spades}. It was checked to Spinks again, and he fired out 1,175. The cutoff check raised it to 2,400, and Spinks came along to see the river.

That card was the {a-Diamonds}, and the cutoff checked for a third time. Spinks fired out a tiny bet of 850, and the cutoff check raised yet again, this time to 2,125. Spinks simply shook his head, laughed, and said "what are you doing?" He tossed in the call, and the cutoff turned over {q-Spades}{10-Hearts}. Spinks chucked his cards towards the muck, giving the pot to his opponent.

Despite losing that hand, Spinks is still above starting stack, sitting on 36,000.
