Demlakian Picks Wrong Time to Shove

Chad_Holloway • Level 29: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

Ken Demlakian raised to 175,000 under the gun only to have Tony Gregg, who was to his direct left, three-bet to 445,000. Action folded back to Demlakian, he called, and the flop came down {2-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{7-Diamonds}.

Demlakian checked, Gregg bet 490,000, and Demlakian snap-shoved. Gregg quickly called off for 1.855 million and Demlakian discovered the bad news.

Demlakian: {a-Clubs}{k-Hearts}
Gregg: {k-Spades}{9-Diamonds}

Gregg flopped top pair and was in prime position to double. That's just what he did too after the {5-Hearts} blanked on the turn followed by the {2-Clubs} on the river.
