Shtayerman Shrugs, Scoops


Sometimes, poker can be a very easy game. At least it might seem so to Noam Shtayerman right about now.

The Israeli open-limped with roughly 100 big blinds behind with K Q from middle position. After Jonas Hähnert (BoM final tablist 2 years running) called from the button the player in the small blind moved all-in for 18 big blinds.

Shtayerman double checked his cards, shrugged and called. Jonas folded and Darragh O’Sullivan, the all-in player, turned over J Q.

He was dominated but certainly did not expect his opponent to show king-queen after limp-calling an 18-big-blind-all-in.

The flop fell Q 7 9, leaving O’Sullivan drawing thin. But the J on the turn completed his suck-out. However … it was no good in the end because the river fell T to give Shtayerman a straight.

Again, Shtayerman shrugged and collected the 75k pot, eliminating his Irish opponent in the process. Speaking of eliminations …

The 2018 BoM Main Event has lost 1,000 players already today in less than 12 levels. That’s more than 2 eliminations per minute!
