Steicke Bets the Whole Way

Win some, lose some. Lose some, win some. David Steicke has had a wild first half-hour of play. Eric Assadourian, having already bluffed Steicke out of one pot, opened for 2,400 and was called by Matt Kay (in position) and Steicke (in the big blind). On a flop of {7-Clubs} {K-Spades} {6-Clubs}, Steicke made a one-third pot bet of 2,400. Only Kay called.

The turn was another small card, the {4-Spades}. Steicke made the price of the river card 5,000 chips and again Kay paid it. On the river {4-Diamonds} Steicke bet 7,500. Kay called but couldn't beat Steicke's {K-Clubs} {8-Clubs} for two pair, kings and fours.

Steicke is back up to 132,000.
