Collopy Caught Out

Jim Collopy's relentlessly aggressive recent approach was fraught with danger if it went wrong, and it did.

He raised from UTG and Stevan Chew defended his big blind, and called a c-bet on the {k-Spades}{q-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} flop. The turn came {7-Hearts} and Chew check-called a 8,900 bet to see the {8-Hearts} river. He checked to the American for a third time and was faced with a bet for all of his 26,000 chips. He blew out a breath of air and called with {q-Diamonds}{j-Clubs} for second pair. Collopy had already mucked his hand and was left with around 9,000 chips.
