Nice Call, Dan

Mikhail Smirnov

Dan Smith raised the button, and Mikhail Smirnov defended his big blind to see the flop.

It came {9-Diamonds} {A-Hearts} {10-Diamonds}, and Smirnov check-called a bet from Smith. It looked like 32,000, but we really can't say with any certainty. What we do know is that both men checked through the {3-Clubs} turn, and the river {6-Spades} drew a leading bet from Smirnov. It was 106,000, and it sent Smith into the tank. He used up a Time Bank chip, mumbled a few words that indicated his hand wasn't very strong, and then made the call.

Smirnov tabled {A-Spades} {5-Hearts} to win the pot, and someone on Smith's rail yelled a sarcastic, "Nice call, Dan!"
