Big Roger Getting Shorter


We picked up the heads-up action on the turn as the board showed {Q-Spades} {8-Hearts} {2-Hearts} {9-Hearts}. Tibor Janos Nagygyorgy checked out of position, and Roger Hairabedian put out a bet of 3,100 into a pot of just less than 6,000. Nagygyorgy responded with a check-raise to 8,300. Hairabedian came right back over the top with another raise to 15,000 total, and Nagygyorgy eventually made the call. The {10-Spades} filled out the board on the river, and the two men were content to check it down.

Hairabedian showed {6-Clubs} {7-Spades} for the bottom straight, and Nagygyorgy waited to see it before slapping his superior {10-Diamonds} {J-Diamonds} down on the felt.

After dropping that pot "Big Roger" is down under his starting stack to about 23,000.
