Stone Applies the Pressure

Posted 2012-07-11 GMT-6

Matt Keikoan raised under the gun, the amount we're not sure, and Nikolas Stone called from the big blind. The latter proceeded to check-call a bet of 65,000 on the {4-Clubs}{5-Spades}{3-Spades} flop, and the check-called a bet of 160,000 on the {4-Diamonds} turn.

When the {3-Hearts} peeled off on the river, Stone moved all in and turned the screws on Keikoan, who thought for about 30 seconds before releasing his hand.
