James Hartigan: At European Poker Tour Barcelona
in 2010, Spain’s Jesus Lizano was the last hope of notching up a home win. He found himself
up against the spirited German, Guiseppe Panteleo, in a crazy showdown. James: So 2 big stacks go to the flop. Flop
is queen high, nothing for either player. William: This is a fairly safe flop to make
a continuation bet, this only hits a queen and a club flush draw. He can bet and take
it down. Or he can think about it and check back.
James: Another queen comes on the turn, it’s also a 3rd club and Lizano, feels like he
can steal it. William: Guiseppe slowed down on the flop,
Jesus is going to take a stab. James: 230,000. William: Well again Guiseppe is going to think
about this. James: We saw him happily float against Shander
de Vries. William: Yep and it looks like that’s what’s
going to go on here, Guiseppe has a cunning plan in store, he is going to float this turn
with nothing, to try to win this pot on the river.
James: They both have the same hand! Queens and deuces with a jack kicker. William: The aggressor will probably win this
pot. James: Lizano has not shut down, he bets a
2nd time! William: And Giuseppe is reaching for chips.
It looks like his plan is falling into place. He’s going to raise Jesus off this chopped
pot. James: Makes it 790,000. Jesus thinks Pantaleo
is on the steal, can he find the courage to re-raise him?
William: Well Jesus can’t possibly call this river raise., he could only be good if Guiseppe
was calling his turn bet with a complete air-ball, to bluff the river. to win he needs to re-raise.
James: He’s called! William: Immediately! Well it’s going to be
a chopped pot. James: Whoah, Pantaleo has just mucked!
[Applause] William: Guiseppe just forfeited the pot by
mucking his hand, it would have been a chopped pot.
James: Yeah but you don’t think someone is going to be calling you with the same hand
do you? I can’t believe Lizano called there with jack high and I can’t believe he just
mucked! If you love that hand click to vote, then
pass it onto your friends.
