Event 37: $2,500 Eight-Game Mix

Checking in the Dark


Pot Limit Omaha:

Just before the level went up, we happened upon a hand between Ali Sarkeshik and Chris Bjorin. The former had raised to 600 under the gun while the latter three-bet to 2,250 from the button. Sarkeshik made the call and said, "I check dark," before covering his eyes and putting action on his opponent.

Bjorin then checked behind after seeing the {2-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}{10-Spades} flop, and Sarkeshik again checked dark before the {7-Spades} was put out on the turn. This time Bjorin took the opportunity to bet 3,000 and Sarkeshik called, followed by a third check in the dark.

Bjorin checked behind on the {7-Clubs} river and showed {A-Spades}{A-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}{8-Spades}, which bested Sarkeshik's {K-Clubs}{K-Spades}{9-Spades}{9-Clubs}.
