While he may have had three final tables to his name already for 2017 for close to US$400,000 in tournament winnings for the year (and it’s only January) Ben Tollerene is enduring a slow start to his Aussie Millions Main Event.
Tollerene has been sitting close to starting stack for the majority of the day and that’s not changed any after just chopping a pot with a tablemate.
After action folded around to Tollerene on the button, he elected to open for 700 with both blinds making the call.
The dealer spread a flop of which brought checks from both small and big blind and after thinking it over Tollerene continuation bet 1,200.
While the small blind gets out of the way the big blind was going nowhere and tossed in the call to take play heads-up to the turn.
The big blind checked for the second time and Tollerene fired out a second bet, this time for 2,600, which is again called by the player in the big blind bringing the action to the river.
After the big blind checked for the third time Tollerene looked to be thinking about betting but decided against it and checked it back, rolling over . The big blind looked relieved and promptly tabled his own for a chop meaning Tollerene is still hovering on around 28,000.
