Holley Forced to Fold


Tod Holley limped in from early position, a player in middle position raised to 24,000, and the action folded back to Holley who called. The flop fell {5-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}, and Holley checked to his opponent who continued for 33,000. Holley called.

The turn was the {q-Clubs}, and Holley's opponent moved all in out of turn. The bet did not stand, unless Holley checked, and Holley asked for a count. The bet would be for 144,000. Holley went deep into the tank, chomping on his unlit cigar and rubbing his face. He eventually folded, and his opponent raked in the pot.

The ESPN camera crews hung around so that they could capture the cards on their small, handheld camera, and Holley was able to coax his opponent to open his hand for everyone. It was the {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts}, which made Holley feel great about his fold.
