Guzzardi Loses Pot, Wins Friend

Catching the action on the turn on a board of {J-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{2-Spades}, Michael Guzzardi fired out 1,125 from early position but was raised by the player on the button to 2,750. Guzzardi made the call and they saw the {4-Spades} fall on the river.

Guzzardi checked and then called the 3,625-chip bet of his opponent only to muck when he saw his opponent flip {7-Hearts}{7-Clubs} for a set.

Guzzardi is currently reading the book "How to Win Friends and Influence People" at the table, so we assume that losing the pot is just a small sacrifice to winning a friend! He's down to 3,100.
