Great Call for Steinberg

Posted 2012-06-19 GMT-6

Dylan Hortin opened the action from under the gun and made it 60,000 to anyone willing to pay to see a flop. Both blinds obliged and Joseph Marzicola made the call from the small blind, and Max Steinberg did the same from the big blind.

The flop came {K-Spades}{k-Clubs}{9-Hearts} and all three players checked. The {5-Hearts} on the turn saw both blinds check and Hortin fire out 85,000. Marzicola folded and Steinberg made the call. The {10-Diamonds} on the river allowed for Steinberg to check, and Hortin to bet out 155,000.

This prompted Steinberg to go deep into the tank pondering what course of action was best. In the end though Steinberg made the call and flipped over {Q-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} for two-pair, kings and nines. Steinberg easily had Hortin beat, as all Hortin could produce was {8-Spades}{7-Spades}.

Nicholson Takes One

Posted 2012-06-19 GMT-6

David Nicholson opened to 65,000 on the button and Joseph Marzicola defended his big blind.

The flop came down {K-Spades}{J-Clubs}{10-Diamonds} and both checked through to the {7-Clubs} turn. A check from Marzicola led to a bet of 70,000 from Nicholson. Marzicola called and the {8-Spades} hit the river. Another Marzicola check led to a bet of 190,000 from Nicholson.

"Wish I was slow playing a big hand," said Marzicola as he folded.

"Well we all feel that way when we have to fold the river," laughed Matt Stout.

Joseph Marzicola raised to 70,000 from the button and was quickly faced with a three-bet by Dylan Hortin. Instead of simply calling Marzicola moved all in for 920,000 and was called by Hortin.

Marzicola: {Q-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}
Hortin: {A-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}

The board came {2-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}{k-Spades}{A-Hearts} and with the queen on the flop Marzicola was basically guaranteed a double up. Hortin was forced to send over a huge chunk of his stack and has now dipped below the two million mark.
