When Big Stacks Go to War

One of the key concepts of no-limit poker is the "pressure bet". Sim Somyung just got a refresher course in pressure bets from David Hilton. Somyung opened preflop for 40,000. David Hilton was next to act and made it 110,000, folding everyone else out of the hand. With action back to Somyung, he four-bet to 290,000. As soon as the bet was counted down, Hilton announced he was all in for about 1.4 million total. Somyung would be at risk of elimination if he called, but he folded and conceded the pot to Hilton.
