Event #12: $1,500 Pot-Limit Hold'em

Oshima Ups His Aggression

YorkshirePud • Level 18: 4,000-8,000, 0 ante
Kezu Oshima

Kezu Oshima opened to 16,000 from under the gun and after Tom McCormick folded, Anton Smirnov three-bet to 60,000. Oshima eventually folded and Smirnov claimed the pot.

That brief hand only tells part of the story because Oshima has becoming extremely aggressive during the past couple of levels, opening pots seemingly for fun. It's a strategy that is reaping dividends because he's now the chip leader with 11 players left with over 500,000 chips.
