Newey Check-Raises the River

Webjoker • Level 1: 500-1,000, 100 ante

Paul Newey, who finished runner-up in this event back in 2014 for €557,090 and who final tabled both the HK$250,000 (2nd for HK$3,507,000/$452,171) and HK$500,000 (3rd for HK$3,208,000/$413,624) high rollers at last month's ACOP in Macau, opened to 2,500 under the gun.

Orpen Kisacikoglu, sitting right next to him, called.

The flop came {J-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{5-Clubs} and Newey and Kisacikoglu both checked. The {K-Clubs} hit the turn and Newey checked again. Kisacikoglu bet 2,000 and Newey called.

With the {A-Clubs} completing the board, Newey checked for the third time. Kisacikoglu bet 5,500 and was soon facing a check-raise by Newey to 16,000. Kisacikoglu tanked for just a bit before he called.

Newey tabled {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts} for runner-runner top two, but that hand was soon going face down into the muck as Kisacikoglu showed {2-Diamonds}{2-Spades} for the flopped set.
