Tuvey Doesn't Back Down from Persson


Action folded around to Philipp Gruissem in middle position and he put in an opening raise to 50,000. In the cutoff seat was Stuart Tuvey and he made the call. From the small blind, Magnus Persson studied the situation. He then three-bet to 162,000. Action went back to Gruissem and he studied himself for about two minutes. Gruissem then folded. Tuvey made the call.

The flop came down {K-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{2-Hearts} and Persson was up first. He had about 1.4 million in chips and Tuvey had about 1.3 million when action went to the flop. Persson led with a bet of 138,000. Tuvey asked how much the bet was for and then called.

Fourth street brought the {Q-Spades} to the board and Persson didn't let up. He fired 298,000. Tuvey called again, not about to back down.

The river was the {7-Spades}. With the board complete, Persson fired 493,000 -- a very hefty bet. Tuvey didn't take too long before making the call.

Persson tapped the table and then turned over the {J-Spades}{8-Clubs} for nothing but jack high. Tuvey showed the {K-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds} for top pair with a jack kicker and won the hand.
