Aleksei Opalikhin Clubs Michael Vela

[user153638] • Nível 25: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

Michael Vela raised to 90,000 from middle position and Aleksei Opalikhin called from the button. Both players checked, the dealer burned and turned the {9-Hearts}, and Vela check-called a bet of 80,000.

When the {10-Hearts} completed the board on the river, Vela checked again and then quickly called when Opalikhin bet 200,000. Opalikhin tabled the {a-Clubs}{9-Clubs}, and Vela turned over the {a-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}.

"I thought we chopped," he'd soon say. "I forgot about clubs."
