Roberts Runs Into Rockets


When the action was folded to Jeremy Simon in the hijack seat, he raised it up 2,000. Jim Collopy flat-called directly on his left and the play was then promptly folded to Brian Roberts in the big blind. This is where Roberts started his trip to "running into aces" land. Roberts three-bet in the big blind and then Simon four-bet to 19,500. The rest of the table was out of the way and Roberts studied his opponent's stack before moving all in.

When Simon insta-called for his 93,200 stack, we can assume Roberts knew his {a-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} was in bad shape. When Simon flipped over his {a-Diamonds}{a-Spades}, Roberts stared stoically towards the felt as the dealer dealt out the board.

The {7-Spades}{9-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} flop gave Roberts a small sweat, but the {k-Clubs} turn and the {k-Hearts} river didn't give Roberts what he needed as he now sits with a pittance of the chip he had before the hand. With that nice hand, Simon is one of the bigger stacks in the room.
