Holley Plays Kings Cautiously

Level 4 : 150-300, 25 ante

Action folded to John Holley who opened from middle position to 750. The player in the cutoff made it 1,700 and everyone else got out of the way. Holley four-bet to 3,750 and the player in the cutoff came along.

The flop fell {a-Hearts}{8-Spades}{5-Diamonds} and both players checked. Both players checked again on the {4-Hearts} turn. When the {7-Clubs} river came, Holley led for 2,100 and his opponent called. Holley showed {k-Clubs}{k-Spades} for a pair of kings and the pot. A few seconds later his opponent turned over {q-Clubs}{q-Spades}.

John Holley, is a well-known and well-liked circuit grinder with two World Series of Poker cashes this summer including a third-place finish in the Senior's event.
