Here is how a few small hands recently played out over in the Red Section of the Brasilia Room.
- On John Juanda's table, there was a flop showing and Juanda had check-raised on opponent who bet 4,250. The amount was enough to put this player all in and he went into the tank for over two minutes. Eventually the player said, "Either you have the same hand, or a set," turning over as he folded his hand.
- Folded to to the player in the cutoff, they raised it up to 1,500. The player on the button called, along with Laak in the small blind. A flop was turned over and Laak led for 2,000. That bet was enough to see both his opponents fold, sending the small pot to Laak.
- When the under the gun plus one opened the pot to 1,325 everyone would fold around to Sam Grafton in the big blind. He made the call and the two players proceeded to play out a hand on a board. Grafton check-called a bet of 1,500 on the flop. Both players checked the turn and Grafton checked the river, before his opponent would tank-bet 4,500. Grafton decided to fold and sent the chips away from his stack.
