Lodden Thinks


Johnny Lodden opened the pot to 4,100, and Tomas Elexhauser three-bet to 13,200 out of positon in the small blind. The Team PokerStars Pro spent a couple long minutes in the tank, but he eventually called to proceed.

Heads up, the dealer spread out {10-Diamonds} {3-Clubs} {6-Hearts} and Elexhauser instantly had 11,000 more chips in the pot. Lodden called that bet, and he called another 21,000 after the {10-Clubs} turn. On the river {5-Hearts}, the two men were content to check it down.

Elexhauser showed up {A-Clubs} {K-Clubs} for ace-high, and it was good enough to win the pot. After that exchange, he's pipped just ahead of Lodden, and both men are hovering right around the chip average.
