Hither and Jan


A couple updates on people called Jan:

We strolled past Jan Bohata's table just in time to see him drop a little pot to an unknown player in Seat 2. The board showed {8-Clubs} {7-Spades} {K-Diamonds} {10-Clubs} {J-Spades}, and there was 4,350 in the pot. Unexcitingly, it went check-check on the only street of action we saw. At showdown, Bohata's {A-Hearts} {K-Clubs} was second-best to his opponent's {K-Hearts} {10-Hearts}, and he's slipped back under his starting stack.

Two tables over, we watched another Czech, Jan Skampa play a pot. Oleksii Khoroshenin opened to 250 from the cutoff, and Skampa three-bet him to 1,050 on the button. Khoroshenin called that amount, then check-called another 1,400 on the {2-Hearts} {Q-Hearts} {4-Diamonds} flop. the turn came the {9-Spades}, and Skampa fired another 3,500 at the pot. That did the trick; Khoroshenin surrendered, and Skampa pips his way up to about 33,000.
