EPT San Remo: The right stuff

April 18, 2009

A bet, a call and a flop of 3♣10♣5♥. Then Stefan Mattsson had some thinking to do. He’d made it 1,625 before his opponent, wearing a cap reading “Trans Ocean Auto”, re-raised, 4,300 in total. Mattsson asked how much it was to call – 2,675 -then how much was in the pot, the dealer spreading the chips. He leaned over for a better look while the raiser held part of his hood over his mouth.

After six minutes of personal deliberation Mattsson made his decision…

“All-in” he said, showing J♣10♥. Called by K♣9♦.

Mattsson quietly urged his hand to hold up and hold up it did – 10♦ on the turn, 7♥ on the river. The decision was a good one, Mattsson up to 25,000.
