Platt Folds Better Pair

jeffmcmillan • Level 33: 200,000-400,000, 400,000 ante

The flop read {7-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{7-Clubs}. Jeff Platt was under the gun and check-called a bet of 600,000 from Kenneth Inouye who was on the cutoff.

The turn came the {3-Spades}. Platt check-called again, this time for 1,600,000.

The river was the {9-Diamonds} to double pair the board. Platt checked a third time over to Inouye who played with his chips a bit before pushing them all forward for the all in of about 5,700,000. Platt went into the tank and thought it out.

"Is to always a nine here? Or could it be something like jack-ten of spades" he said out loud trying to get anything out of Inouye who didn't budge.

Eventually he folded saying he was laying down a pair. Inouye showed the {5-Clubs}{5-Hearts} which Platt immediately winced at, indicating he had folded the better pair as he confirmed to his rail after the hand.
