Vakili Drops Another Pot

Vanessa Selbst limped in from the button and Sam Vakili checked his option to see a flop of {j-Spades}{j-Clubs}{q-Spades}, which both players checked.

Vakili fired out a bet of 300 on the turn of the {k-Hearts}, Selbst called and the dealer produced the {8-Diamonds} on the river.

Vakili attempted to lead for a bet of 800, but he used the "single-handed double-barrel" technique, which was ruled as a string bet by the dealer, so the first 300 in chips to hit the felt was taken as the bet.

Selbst called, Vakili flashed a {10-Diamonds}, clearly not interested in claiming the pot, particularly after Selbst revealed {q-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}.
