Gonsalves Pressures Yifrach

AaronMcBride • Level 20: 8,000-16,000, 16,000 ante

The flop fell {a-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}, and Gal Yifrach checked from the big blind.

Markus Gonsalves bet from the hijack, and Yifach called before the {k-Hearts} hit the turn.

Yifrach then check-called a 115,000 bet from Gonsalves and checked for the third time after the {2-Spades} peeled off on the river.

Gonsalves thought for a minute then cut a 300,000 bet from his stack and slid it into the middle.

Yifrach went into the tank with 320,000 behind, and both players remained silent.

Close to two minutes ticked past before Yifrach made up his mind and gave in the to pressure from Gonsalves and folded.

"Show one?" asked tablemate Stefan Huber.

"Come on, it's for PokerNews," he added.

Ramin Hajiyev jokingly placed his hand over one of Gonsalves' cards and asked if he could show it.

Gonsalves obliged and Hajiyev flipped over the {j-Clubs} for all to see.

Markus Gonsalves us 1,200,000 170,000
Gal Yifrach us 320,000 -240,000
