Loth Pushes Back


The play has slowed considerably now that we're near the money bubble.

In a recent hand, Richard Loth opened for 9,500 from middle position and was met with a three-bet to 24,500 from Yevgeniy Timoshenko in the small blind. Loth made the call and then watched his opponent lead out for 20,000 on the {9-Hearts}{7-Spades}{J-Hearts}. Loth thought for a moment, put together some chips, and then came out with a raise to 45,000. Timoshenko eyed up his opponent and then flicked his cards to the muck.
