Level 8: 400/800 (800)
Tomas Martini checked after the 8♦4♦A♥ came on the flop before Tayfun Rodoplu fired out for 3,500 into a pot of around 7,000. Martini raised to 10,500 and Rodoplu called.
Martini jammed for nearly 19,000 on the 3♦ turn. Rodoplu had a few chips more and found a quick call.
Tomas Martini: A♠8♦
Tayfun Rodoplu: A♦Q♥
“Pair the board, please,” pleaded Rodoplu.
We can only assume he meant that he wanted his queen to pair as if the board paired up he would still be down to crumbs. Neither situation happened as instead the blank 9♣ completed the board for Martini to double through Rodoplu.
Tomas Martini – 70,000
Tayfun Rodoplu – 500
