Uri Reichenstein Doubles Up

KaleGozer • Level 36: 250,000-500,000, 50,000 ante
Uri Reichenstein

Hand #141: Sebastian Malec got a walk.

Hand #142: Malec limped the button with {Q-Clubs}{10-Spades} and Uri Reichenstein checked {A-Spades}{6-Diamonds}. The flop {K-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{7-Clubs} hit Malec hard, and he took it down with a 1,650,000 bet.

Hand #143: Reichenstein raised with {10-Spades}{8-Hearts} and Malec called with {A-Hearts}{9-Spades}. Malec check-called a bet of 1,000,000 on the {Q-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} flop.

The turn was the {2-Hearts}. Malec checked, and Reichenstein now bet 2,400,000. Malec asked for a count of Reichenstein's stack, then called the turn.

The {J-Clubs} on the river was exactly what Reichenstein needed, as he filled his straight up. Malec laughed and joked, but when Reichenstein shoved 10,550,000 into the nine million pot, it was no laughing matter anymore.

"I want to call you so bad," Malec said, and he rose from his chair. For minutes on end, he named all the possible holdings Reichenstein could have in his range, desperately trying to find a holding he could beat.

"It's a very good spot for me to call," Malec said, having done two minutes of math out loud, while using words that would make many a recreational player's head spin.

"Ok, I call," Malec said ten seconds later, sliding a tower of 500,000-chips forward. Reichenstein quickly flipped over his straight, and a visibly gutted Malec had to ship ten million in chips to his opponent. Reichenstein scored a huge double up and reclaimed the chiplead.
