Martins Chops it Up

• Nível 4: 150-300, 25 ante

Yuri Martins just split a pot with a tablemate to net himself a small profit.

After a preflop raise to 700 was met with a call from the player in the hijack, Martins bumped it up to 2,900 from the small blind. Both the opener and the hijack called to see the paired {10-Hearts}{7-Spades}{10-Diamonds} flop.

Three checks later the dealer turned the {q-Hearts} and once again Martins and the initial raiser checked their options. The players in the hijack seat, however, made it 3,500 to go. He was called in two spots and the river came the {10-Clubs}.

The action was on Martins first and he tanked for over two minutes before deciding on a wager of 15,000. The original opener called it off but the hijack tabled pocket sevens in disgust before tossing them into the muck. His flopped full house had been counterfeited and with Martins holding {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds} and his active opponent showing {q-Spades}{j-Spades} they were both playing tens full of queens to split the pot.
