Steinman Takes From Li

OHairDJ • Level 7: 500-1,000, 1,000 ante

Fred Li opened to 2,200 from early position and found one caller in Ian Steinman from the middle.

Both player checked on the {2-Spades}{q-Hearts}{j-Diamonds} flop and Li checked again on the {10-Diamonds} turn, prompting a 3,000 bet from Steinman. Li called.

Both players checked again on the {a-Clubs} river and Li tabled {q-Clubs}{9-Clubs} for a pair of queens. It was no good against the {a-Spades}{j-Spades} of Steinman for two pair.

"That's what I do — I bet when I'm behind and check when I'm ahead," Steinman joked as he collected the pot.
