Lewis Knocked Back


In middle position, Serbia's Vlado Banicevic opened to 550, and both Gus Hansen (button) and Toby Lewis (small blind) put in the calls to proceed.

The dealer spread out a {4-Clubs} {6-Diamonds} {8-Clubs} flop, and Lewis paused first to act. He eventually led out with 1,200 of his own chips, and Banicevic considered for about a minute before raising to 3,500. Hansen folded quickly, Lewis called, and the turn brought the {10-Hearts}. It went check-check this time, and the {J-Clubs} filled out the board on the river. Lewis checked again, then reluctantly called one final bet of 3,500.

Banicevic showed up his {9-Clubs} {10-Clubs} for the flush, and Lewis double-checked his cards and spun them softly into the muck.
