The High Stakes Rail – 6/13/10-6/19/10

June 7, 2022/Uncategorized

With the World Series of Poker in full swing, the online high stakes action is certainly beginning to settle down. However, this does not mean that it is totally non-existent. Everybody’s favorite high stakes player, Isildur1, is back. Ziigmund and he were playing at Full Tilt crypto gambling pot-limit Omaha $200/$400 tables. The pots were smaller than usual with the biggest pot totaling a bit less than $150,000. Nevertheless, the high stakes action was fast, furious, and worth taking a look at.

In the biggest hand of the week, Isildur1 raised to $1,200 on the button with KcJd9c8d. With 4c3s2s2c and effective stacks at approximately $75,000, Ziigmund called out of position. The flop was Kh5h2d, giving Isildur1 top-pair and Ziigmund a set of twos. Ziigmund check-raised Isildur1’s $2,400 bet to $9,600 and Ziigmund called. The turn, a 9d, improved Isildur1’s hand, giving him a flush draw along with top two-pair. The turn induced both stacks into the pot and Isildur1 saw he was behind. Luckily for him, the Ad gave him the flush and the $147,588 pot.

Ziigmund and Isildur1 continued to battle it out in the second largest hand last week. Isildur1, on the button again, raised to $1,200 with Kc8h7s5c and Ziigmund called, out of position, with Kh6c3h2c. The Kd5h4c was sure to get a lot of action with Isildur1 hitting two-pair, but Ziigmund hit a huge straight draw along with his pair of kings. Ziigmund donked the flop with a pot-size bet that Isildur1 raised. In response, Ziigmund three-bet the flop to $31,200 and Isildur1 called. The Ah on the turn completed Ziigmund’s straight and gave him a flush draw. Stacks quickly went into the pot. This time, however, Isidlur1 received no help on the river; it was a 6h which gave him a straight, but also blessed Ziigmund with a flush draw. The $140,393 pot was Ziigmund’s.

Ziigmund continued to thrash Isildur1 in this next hand. Isildur1, once again on the button, raised to $1,200. This time, with only a $66,398 stack, Ziigmund three-bet to $3,600 with AsKsJc9c. Isildur1 called and saw the KhTs2s. This flop was huge for Ziigmund giving him top-pair, top-kicker and the nut flush draw. He lead the flop with a $6,400 bet that was called. The turn was a 3d and Ziigmund bet the pot, $20,000. Isildur1 once again called and saw the board pair with a 2h on the river. Ziigmund shoved the rest of his $36,798 stack into the $60,000 pot. Isildur1 called again, but when he saw Ziigmund’s hand, he mucked and gave Ziigmund the $133,595.50 pot.

However, in the last pot we will look at this week, Isildur1 won some of that money back. On the button, he raised to $1,200 with Jh9d8c4d, and effective stacks at $60,191. Ziigmund raised with his double-suited KsKc8s5c. Isildur1, using position to his advantage, called and saw the QsTs5h flop fall. This flop was great for both players; it gave Ziigmund a flush draw (along with his overpair of kings) and Isildur1 a big straight draw. Ziigmund lead this flop with a pot-sized bet of $7,200 which was called by Isildur1. Ziigmund’s second barrel, a pot-sized bet of $21,600, was also called on the 2d brick of a turn. The 9c river, on the other hand, hit Isildur1 with a straight. Ziigmund shoved the rest of his stack in and Isildur1 made the $27,791 call. He showed his queen-high straight and won the $120,382.50 pot.

This last week was one of the calmer weeks in high stakes poker. Expect weeks similar to this as the World Series of Poker continues this summer.
