Hands #128-130: The Roller Coaster Ride Continues

zedmaster84 • Level 26: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

Hand #128: Paul Sokoloff limped from the button, Will Givens called in the small blind and Angela Prada-Moed three-bet to 120,000 out of the big blind. Both opponents called to see the three-way {Q-Spades}{5-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} flop.

Givens bet 145,000 and Prada-Moed called, Sokoloff folded. Givens checked the {3-Spades} turn and then called 225,000 by Prada-Moed before both gave up any action after the {A-Clubs} river. Prada-Moed showed {7-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} but it was only second best to the {Q-Clubs}{J-Spades} of Givens.

Hand #129: Sokoloff received a walk.

Hand #130: Prada-Moed raised to 80,000 and Sokoloff moved all in for 700,000. Givens asked for a count and then moved all in himself. Prada-Moed folded and we went to yet another classic race.

Sokoloff: {A-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}
Givens: {6-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}

The {4-Clubs}{8-Spades}{J-Spades} flop brought no change but Sokoloff picked up a few more outs with the {J-Diamonds} turn. Indeed, the {8-Hearts} river would pair the board and his ace kicker won the pot.
