Steicke Can't Hang On

David Steicke talked earlier today about a play he made on the final table of his last event in which he 3-bet shoved over an open raise with ace-ten. He wasn't sure he was happy with that play even though others assured him it was "standard".

He made the same play today and it didn't work out here, either. After Amit Varma opened with a small raise, Steicke 3-bet to 40,000, leaving himself just 5,000 behind. Varma shoved, Steicked called, and the race was on, Varma's pocket 7s against Steicke's {a-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}. It was a swing and a miss for Steicke on a {4-Clubs}{3-Spades}{j-Hearts}{4-Spades}{7-Clubs} board. He's out.
