Saechao Nearing Victory

Posted 2012-05-29 GMT-6 by

Chaib Saechao called from the small blind, and Patricia Baker checked her option. The flop came out {4-Hearts}{3-Spades}{3-Diamonds}, and Baker fired out a big bet of 100,000. Saechao went into the tank for about 20 seconds, before announcing all in. Baker had less then 400,000 behind, but she was reluctant to call off the rest of it. After about 30 seconds, she said "I should have raised preflop" and folded her hand. This dropped her down to 360,000, while Saechao now has almost 2 million.
