Schaefer Makes Great Call

A bet of 65,000 is becoming quite common in this heads up match, and this recent hand was no different with Brandon Schaefer putting out that standard bet on the button. Jonathan Cohen in the big blind made the call and saw a {6-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}{5-Spades} flop. It was here that both players checked.

A {6-Spades} on the turn brought another check from Cohen, and a bet of 75,000 from Schaefer. Instead of simply calling or folding Cohen raised and made it 250,000, and after awhile Schaefer convinced himself he was good and made the call.

The {10-Hearts} on the river saw a 325,000 bet from Cohen, a bet Schaefer was not sure about. After a minute or so Schaefer did indeed make the call. Cohen instantly mucked and Schaefer showed {J-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}.
