Balsiger Shoves Early

Chad_Holloway • Level 1: 25-25, 0 ante

After the cutoff put in a small raise, 2012 WSOP Main Event third-place finisher Jake Balsiger called from the small blind and it was heads-up action to the {4-Hearts}{2-Spades}{8-Hearts} flop. Balsiger checked, his opponent bet 150, and Balsiger sprung to life with a check-raise to 425.

His opponent made the call and then watched Balsiger fire out 675 on the {6-Clubs} turn. Again the cutoff called, and Balsiger opted to keep the pressure on by moving all in on the {K-Hearts} river. His opponent mumbled something about the third heart and then slid his cards to the dealer.
