Small Betting Does Tonypet No Good


On a flop of {6-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}, Mike Puno bet out 30,000 and Tony Albano made the call.

When the {4-Hearts} came on the turn, Mike painfully checked over to Tony, who slid a small bet of 20,000 into the pot. Mike made the call.

Both players then proceeded to check down the river of {5-Diamonds}. When Mike showed his {j-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} for the diamond flush, Tony, who had only hit a pair of tens with no diamonds, exclaimed to the dealer, "Why did you have to give that river?!"

"You gave me such good odds to call," replied Mike.
