Call Him Or Don't; Either Way, He Wins

The fins of this Mizrachi shark

Two hands ago, Shawn Buchanan raised to 25,000, and Michael Mizrachi called to see a flop. It came {3-Spades} {7-Hearts} {Q-Diamonds}, and Mizrachi check-called a bet of 26,000. They checked through the {6-Spades} turn, and Mizrachi led out with 30,000 after the {3-Diamonds} river. Buchanan quickly folded.

On the next hand, Mizrachi limped in, and Buchanan knocked the table for a free flop. They check-checked until the river as the board ran {2-Spades} {K-Spades} {Q-Diamonds} {5-Diamonds} {10-Clubs}, but Mizrachi put out a bet of 25,000 after a third Buchanan check. He didn't seem to like it, but Buchanan talked himself into the call. Mizrachi announced his, "Queen," showed {Q-Hearts} {4-Hearts}, and scooped the pot.

Things are really becoming lopsided now, and Buchanan will need to find some chips in a hurry.

Chips Count
Michael Mizrachi us 3,406,000 100,000
Shawn Buchanan ca 350,000 -100,000
