Aussie Millions Main Event

Idema Faulters


Bjorn Li opened the pot from the button holding {3-Clubs}{2-Clubs} and Daniel Idema made the call in the big blind holding {9-Hearts}{10-Clubs}. The {q-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} flop prompted Idema to check and then call Li's bet of 49,000.

The {a-Clubs} on the turn saw Idema again check, except this time he raised it up to 250,000 when Li bet 104,000. Li made the call and the {3-Diamonds} hit the river. Idema took a little longer to make his decision here, but again opted to check. Li then thought for almost a minute, cutting down his chip stacks and thinking about what to do. Eventually Li checked.

When the players turned their cards over, Idema's hand was not good enough for the rivered small pair for Li.

Chip stacks
Daniel Idema ca 2,100,000 -300,000
Bjorn Li au 1,500,000 250,000
