Cimbolas Promises Big Pot; Folds Jacks as Gathy Busts

zedmaster84 • Level 9: 500-1,000, 100 ante
Matas Cimbolas

Matas Cimbolas raised to 2,500 and said in table chat "I promise you a big pot," then short stack and three-time WSOP bracelet winner Michael Gathy moved all in. Attila Valentai in the big blind asked for a count and the shove of Gathy was for 17,500. Valentai called and so did Cimbolas.

On the {7-Spades}{6-Clubs}{6-Spades} flop, Valentai bet 13,500 and Cimbolas gave it some thought. "This doesn't make any sense," the Lithuanian said and folded {J-Diamonds}{J-Hearts} face up.

Michael Gathy: {A-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}
Attila Valentai: {A-Hearts}{A-Clubs}

Cimbolas patted himself on the shoulder for the good fold, and the {2-Spades} turn and {7-Hearts} river were both blanks to eliminate Gathy. "I promised you a big pot, but we messed up," Cimbolas added to Valentai.
