Event #32: $10,000 Six-Handed No-Limit Hold'em Championship

"A Good Player Can Fold"

[user101598] • Level 16: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante
Larry Wright

Markus Gonsalves raised to 8,000 from under the gun, Larry Wright called on the button, and Sam Greenwood defended his big blind. The flop fell {j-Hearts}{q-Spades}{7-Clubs}, Greenwood checked, and Gonsalves continued for 10,000. Only Wright called.

The turn was the {a-Spades}, Wright called another 23,000, and the {a-Diamonds} completed the board. Gonsalves checked for the first time, and Wright pushed out a massive over bet, making it 123,000 to go.

Gonsalves went into the tank.

"A good player can fold here," Wright said in typical Larry Wright fashion.

Gonsalves did fold, and Wright picked his cards up high enough so that his opponent could see that he had {a-Clubs}{a-Hearts}.

"You lost money on the river," Gonsalves told him, referring to the second ace.
