$1,000 No-Limit Hold'em Opening Event

Mizzi Squeezed

With about 4,000 in the pot and a flop of {3-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}, Sorel Mizzi checked from the big blind, as did a player in middle-position. The button then bet out 1,300, which Mizzi called. The MP player then woke up with a check-raise to 5,000, leaving himself just a few thousand behind. The button thought long and hard before announcing a raise to 10,000.

The squeeze worked on Mizzi as he folded and preserved his stack of 18,000. It was a good thing he did too, as the MP player snap-called and revealed {K-Spades}{J-Spades}, which had the button's {7-Hearts}{3-Hearts} crushed.
