Event #48: $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Power Pocket Pairs Preflop Profitable for Simunic

• Level 18: 4,000-8,000, 8,000 ante

Josh Arieh started the pot with a preflop open to 18,000. Josip Simunic in the cutoff made the call and Antal Mezei on the button three-bet to 36,000. Arieh folded but Simunic, after a bit of a dwell up, moved all in for 204,000 total. Mezei sigh-called, acknowledging the trouble his {q-Hearts}{q-Clubs} was in vs. the {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds} of Simunic.

No help for queens on the {2-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{2-Spades}{10-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} board, and Simunic doubled up.
