On table one, the table of beats, Abe Gordon just called down two streets, with the final card completing a [name="5d"] [name="4h"] [name="qd"] [name="7d"] [name="3c"] runout.
The preflop raiser, Chris Jacobelli, snap checked it back, and Gordon announced “straight,” turning over [name="6h"] [name="6s"].
Jacobelli rose out of his chair and slammed the felt with both hands, distressed by the unexpected hand.
“I almost shoved the river.”
As Gordon collected the pot, so key to the now short Jacobelli, the winner said, “I had to call.”
Back on two, the loose and aggressive Panfils had put himself in another spot.Panfils, left, facing Paladino’s shove. Frustration.
After raising for a quarter of his stack, Ramona Paladino now shoved over him.
Caught again, he agonized, and then folded.
Ramona collected a nice pot without showdown from Panfils – just as she had promised.
