Ngu Switches Gears

Jessica Ngu has been fairly passive all day, but she pulled out the big guns against Mike Ivin. Preflop, Ivin opened to 1,800, and Ngu called from the highjack. The cutoff, who had three-bet the previous hand, looked like he was going to make a move, but after counting out several different sized bets, decided to fold instead, sending Ivin and Ngu to the flop heads-up. It came all small cards, {7-Hearts}{4-Spades}{3-Spades}. Ivin bet 1,500, and Ngu stuck in a small raise, making it 3,500. Ivin flatted. The turn was the {7-Clubs}, and Ivin bet out 3,500. This time, Ngu opted for a huge raise. She counted out stacks of two T500 chips, then restacked them all and made it 13,000 to go. Ivin quickly gave up on the odd hand.
