Andy Hills, Never Boring

Passing by Andrew Hills’ table certainly never is boring.

Our Day 2 chip leader is always in there, seemingly pushing his opponents around and putting immense amounts of pressure on his fellow players.

We just witnessed him play a huge hand against the other big stack at the table, Tim Givony.

Givony raised from early position and Hills came over the top with a 3-bet. Givony called.

Flop: 8 7 4 (roughly 240k in the middle)

Givony checks, Hills bets 80k and Givony quickly calls.

Turn: J (400k)

Givony checks and now Hills bets 250k. Again Givony calls.

River: A (900k)

Givony checks a third time and Hills seemingly ice cold slides 550k over the betting line. That’s more than the average stack of the remaining players and roughly 80% of Givony’s stack.

Directly after Hills’ bet Givony pounded on the table and started moaning.

Givony was visibly uncomfortable with the way this hand played out. Multiple times he exclaimed he had a set and that he was quite sure he had Hills beat.

But he couldn’t find it in his heart this time to go with his instinct. After a couple of minutes Givony eventually folded his hand.

Hills extends his chip lead and now has 2.5m chips – 5 times the average stack.
