Easy Come, Easy Go for Fleischer

[user153638] • Nivå 2: 100-200, 0 ante

Within 22 minutes of this tournament Terry Fleischer had eliminated Mehrdad Danialifar and doubled his stack. It was the dream start, but things have quickly went south for Fleischer as he lost all those chips and then some to poker pro Micah Raskin.

We didn't see the hand when it happened, but Raskin was kind enough to fill us in on some details. According to him, Fleischer opened with a raise holding the {a-Hearts}{3-Hearts} and Raskin three-bet holding {a-}{a-}. Fleischer flatted and the flop came all low cards with two hearts. Fleischer led out with his flush draw and Raskin raised. Fleischer then jammed and Raskin, who had a decent stack behind, tanked before calling off. The turn and river both blanked and Raskin's pocket rockets held to give him the hefty pot while Fleischer's dream start turned into a nightmare as he is now down to 13,000.
