Hand #149 - #153: Malec Acting Up

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

Hand #149: Reichenstein got a walk.

Hand #150: Reichenstein raised with {A-Spades}{10-Hearts} and won the pot.

Hand #151: Malec limped with {6-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} and Reichenstein raised with {10-Spades}{9-Spades}. Malec immediately folded.

Hand #152: Reichenstein got a walk.

Hand #153: Malec raised to 1,100,000 with {6-Hearts}{5-Spades} and Reichenstein called {Q-Clubs}{J-Clubs}. Malec flopped two pair on {6-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{2-Spades}, Reichenstein checked, Malec bet 700,000, and Reichenstein check-raised his queen high to 2,600,000.

Once again, it was bad timing for Reichenstein to make a move, as Malec was sitting on a monster. Malec, who was standing up throughout the hand, danced around in his place as he counted out the chips.

Malec was thinking for so long that Reichenstein called the clock on him. When the countdown started, Malec three-bet to 5,900,000, and Reichenstein snap-folded.

Malec won't be winning the Oscar any time soon, but he did win this pot.
