Verboven Pressures Ionel Close to the Bubble


Belgian high stakes cash game professional Filip Verboven just put maximum pressure on Anton Ionel.

Ionel raised from the button to 11,500, and Verboven three-bet him to 29,000 from the small blind. Ionel called.

The flop came down {2-Hearts}{10-Spades}{J-Clubs}, and Ionel called the 29,000-chip continuation bet from Verboven. On the turn the {8-Spades} hit, and Verboven bet 58,000. Ionel called once more.

The river was the {6-Hearts}, and Verboven put Ionel all in for his final 110,000 chips. The Romanian pro tanked for a while, but eventually he laid his hand down.

Verboven is off to a great start, and he's now cruising towards the money. The Belgian doesn't have a great seat at the table, since he's to the direct right of Chris Moorman.
