James Noonen is sitting at Fabrice Soulier’s table and is enjoying the Battle of Malta with a beer or two. Or three.
Sometimes he calls when he means to raise; sometimes he folds when he means to call. We’re not sure whether his confusion is part of a system or genuine.
But he seems like a very likeable guy. At least his opponents like him.
Right now he min-raised from the button with 9♥ 8♥ and got a caller in Soulier in the big blind.
Flop: 8♦ 5♥ 5♦
Fabrice checked and James checked his top pair behind as well.
Now Soulier took the lead and bet 7k. James called.
Again Fabrice bet 7k and again James smooth called. Fabrice turned over T♣ 5♠ for trips and somehow Noonen managed to lose the minimum in this hand.
Cheers to that!
