€25,500 High Roller

Folding And Showing

Webjoker • Level 5: 200-400, 50 ante

Players tend to not show their cards when they fold. Sometimes though, things are a bit more relaxed and they do.

Just now we saw Alex Bilokur open for 1,100 in the hijack. Gruissem made the call from the cutoff and Sam Trickett squeezed to 3,700 from the button. After both blinds folded, Bilokur four-bet to 8,100 and Gruissem instantly folded. Trickett did the same after some thinking, tabling {3-Hearts}{4-Hearts} and laughing about it. "I was gonna hit that flop" Trickett said with a big smile to Bilokur and the dealer.

Two tables down we saw Johnny Lodden raise it up to a 1,000 under the gun. Talal Shakerchi made the call in the hijack and Steve O'Dwyer came along from the big blind. O'Dwyer and Lodden checked to Shakerchi on {3-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} and he bet 2,000. O'Dwyer folded and so did Lodden, showing {A-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}. Shakerchi tabled {10-Spades}{10-Clubs} and they were on to the next hand.

It's a friendly game of poker here, like a home game but than with a buy in of €25,000.
