Heseding Changes His Game Plan

How quickly poker can change?

We have been singing the praises of the performance of Zimnan Ziyard since we got three-way and now it is our turn to give the German a shout out. Hauke Heseding has started to play a lot more aggressive (or he is picking up some well-timed monsters) as you can see in the following hands:

Heseding raised to 200,000 on the button and Ziyard three-bet to 500,000 from the small blind. Heseding moved all-in very quickly and Ziyard was the one left facing the tough test. "Are you strong this time or do you have king-ten?" Asked Ziyard before eventually folding his hand.

Ziyard then opened up to 200,000 on the button and Heseding three-bet to 700,000 in the big blind. "I don't think I can fold this time," said Ziyard before sliding one tower of yellows into the middle to make the call. The flop was {9-Spades} {6-Diamonds} {3-Clubs} and Heseding checked to Ziyard and he bet a cool 500,000. Back to Heseding and he moved all-in and Ziyard sheepishly folded.

Meanwhile John Taramas is just sat there with a great big smile on his face.
