Levy Makes A Strong Play

Joel "Strong Play" Dodds sent to the rail
With a raise to 800 from early position, Grant Levy made the call before play was with Joel Dodds in the small blind who raised to 2,025 leaving himself around 1,500 behind.

The original raisor folded and Levy considered his options.

"You can't just call!" exclaimed Dodds, but Levy replied with, "I know I'm going to put a beat on you though," before flat-calling.

The flop fell {A-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} and Levy tossed out the minimum bet of 300 out of turn. The floor was called and it was ruled that if Dodds checked, then Levy would be forced to check behind. That's exactly what happened as the free card was the {9-Spades} on the turn.

Dodds then led out for 825 and Levy laughed, "I hope you have aces," before raising to 2,000 to put Dodds all in.

Dodds made a pot-committed call and flipped {Q-Spades}{J-Spades} for just a straight draw as Levy was in front with his {6-Clubs}{8-Clubs} for a creative two pair.

The river bricked the {3-Clubs} and Levy eliminates his good buddy on his way to 34,000 chips.
