In a recent back and forth between Said Michailidis and Gabriel Attiave in the 10PM Grand Prix Turbo, both players seemed happy and relaxed at the end, even though one of them had just been eliminated. We suppose that if you’re going down, you may as well be comfortable.
The hand began with raise from Gabriel to 8,000 preflop. It was called by Said, and they saw a come down. Both checked, and the turn was a .
This time the Gabriel bet 25,000, which was called by Said again. Now it was a dealt on the river, meaning among other things that there were no flushes available. Gabriel’s shove was insta-called by Said, who showed his Jack-high straight.
It turns out Said had been betting big, chasing the gut-shot, while Gabriel was out ahead the whole time. Oh well! That’s why they call it gambling. Said collected the chips, and it is unclear if Gabriel is still at the table, completely at ease with his play thus far, despite the results.
