Palma Wins Battle of North American Circuit Regs

[user249920] • Level 10: 600-1,200, 200 ante

Nicholas Palma three-bet to 8,000 from middle position after Ari Engel opened to 3,000 under the gun and got one caller. Engel dropped in a four-bet and Palma wasted no time before jamming for 35,100.

"At least it's going to you if I bust," Palma said with a smile.

Engel called with {a-Clubs}{k-Clubs} but was behind Palma's {k-Spades}{k-Hearts}. The board ran out {k-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{6-Spades}{a-Diamonds}, leaving Engel dead on the turn. He sent the chips to his familiar opponent — both players are regular faces in events around the U.S.
