Cautious Play by Rasheed

• Nível 1: 50-100, 0 ante

With already 13,000 chips in the middle and the board reading {7-Hearts}{8-Spades}{K-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{K-Spades}, Stephan Zesiger made a bet of 11,000. That was half of his remaining stack.

The action was on Ireland's Mahmood Rasheed, who tanked for around a minute before making the call. Zesiger showed {3-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}. He thought his full house was enough to take down the pot, but Rasheed slammed his {8-Hearts}{8-Clubs} for eights full of kings.

His bigger full house gave him the win and Zesiger was confused about the river action.

"You scared me", was Rasheed explanation.

"What would you be scared of", the Swiss replied.

"Well, you could have slowplayed kings."

Then, Martin Kozlov laughed and jumped in the conversation as well: "you can never be too careful."

Rasheed was involved in the next hand as well. This time he check-called a 1,800 -bet of Orpen Kisacikoglu on a {Q-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{5-Spades}. He looked at his opponent and started speeching again: "I'm a mad man, stay away from me", he told Kisacikoglu.

Both checked the {4-Hearts} river and Rasheed took down the pot with {Q-Spades}{J-Diamonds}.
