More Pressure From Li

Bjorn Li

Bjorn Li has one gear, and that's the fifth one! We missed the pre flop action in a blind battle between Li and Idema, but the flop read {A-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} when we walked up to the table. Li bet 28,000 from the small blind and Idema made the call.

The turn was the {7-Diamonds} and Li fired out 83,000, getting Idema to rise up in his chair and look at his opponent. After a while Idema smoothly threw in the call.

On the river the {9-Diamonds} hit and Li grabbed a handful of 25,000 chips. He moved his hand into the pot and cut out a 200,000 bet after which he pulled back the rest of the chips. The dealer immediately ruled it was a string bet since Li cut down the stack and pulled chips back. Idema was on Li's side and said that the bet was valid, but the dealer disagreed. When the floor came over to make a ruling he let the bet Li made stand. "You happy with that?", Idema smiled trying to get some sort of a reaction for his opponent. Li gave nothing away and Idema opted to lay this one down.
