Saenko Gets Some Back


It looks like Andrey Saenko was the reason for the chip increase that Garri Tevosov experienced at the start of the level. But Saenko has gotten some of those chips back, at least.

The pot began with Johnny Lodden opening to 3,200 from the cutoff, and Tevosov called from the button. The small blind called, Saenko called from the big, and it was four-handed to the flop. It came {7-Hearts} {5-Clubs} {A-Diamonds}, and Saenko was the first one to bet at the pot with 6,800. Lodden and the small blind folded away, but Tevesov called to see the turn.

It was the {6-Diamonds}, and Saenko fired another 12,200. Tevesov called instantly this time, but he faced another bet of 23,400 after the {5-Diamonds} river. He could not call the last bullet, surrendering and sending the pot over to Saenko. After the hand, the two men spent a minute discussing things in their native Russian, but we don't understand much Russian, unfortnuately.

As you can see, that recoups some of Saenko's losses, but he's still slightly down from his start-of-day count.
