Kempe Can't Fold; Sends His Chips to Politano

[user340093] • Nível 14: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante
Bruno Politano

With about 70,000 chips already in the pot, Rainer Kempe (button) clashed with Bruno Politano (small blind) on the turn reading {2-Clubs}{4-Spades}{Q-Spades}{10-Spades}.

Politano checked to Kempe, who fired 19,000. Politano went into about two-minute deep thought. In the meantime, he took a sip from his drink. Then he said he was all in.

Kempe had only about 40,000 left behind. He looked at his remaining chips, shook his head and moved them towards the middle, saying "I can't fold" with a disappointing tone in his voice.

Kempe sensed bad news and he was right as he saw a devastating {A-Spades}{9-Spades} in the showdown to leave his {A-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds} drawing dead. The river {2-Diamonds} was only a formality as Kempe was already on his way. The Brazilian November Niner slowly stacked up a new ton of chips from the huge pot. When Politano finished, it became clear he just broke the 300,000 chip-mark.
