Gorr Dips Below Starting

David Gorr

The gentleman in the cutoff seat came in raising to 900, and David Gorr three-bet to 2,700 behind him on the button. The raiser called, and they were off to a heads-up flop.

It came {8-Diamonds} {9-Diamonds} {5-Hearts}, and Gorr continued out with another 3,600. His opponent tanked for a while before making the call, and he checked again on the {6-Diamonds} turn. Gorr took a moment to peek back at his cards, then knocked the table to see the {6-Hearts} pair the board on the river. Now Mr. Opponent led out into the pot for 6,900, and that sent Gorr into the tank for a good while. He cut the call from his stack, eyeing up the ~24,000 he'd have left if he was wrong.

About 90 seconds later, Gorr grabbed the calling chips and flung then into the pot. The opponent showed first, and his {A-Diamonds} {Q-Diamonds} was good for the ace-high flush and good enough to win the pot.

The defending champion is finding the going a bit tough today, and he's slipped back to that 24,000 after calling incorrectly.
