Team PokerStars is off to a rough start.
Barry Greenstein saw a flop for a raise from middle position against a player in the big blind, who check-called 5,000. Greenstein barreled again for 7,800 on the turn, and his opponent put in 15,000. The dealer made him put in 600 more for a legal raise, and Greenstein nonetheless folded after some time.
At another table, Victor Ramdin called the all-in shove of an early-position player who had about 11,000. Ramdin held kings and was fading only a pair of deuces, but his opponent called for a backdoor heart flush and got there with the river.
