Levi Building a Fortress


Nicolas Levi raised to 80,000 from the button, and Ari Engel three-bet to 200,000 in the small blind. Levi called, and there was 425,000 in the middle headed off to the flop.

It came {J-Spades} {10-Spades} {K-Hearts}, and Engel laid out a tiny bet of 50,000 in the form of two yellow chips. Levi clicked it back to 100,000 total, and Engel flatted to see the next card. It was the {Q-Diamonds}, and the two men checked through to the {5-Spades} river. When Engel checked again, Levi fired a 500,000-chip bullet, and that sent the checker deep into the tank. Engel would spend the next few minutes agonizing in the tank, but he eventually double-checked his cards and returned them to the dealer.

Despite that loss, Engel has still improved his stack since our last update.
