Hands #177-179: Aldemir Correctly Calls With Bottom Pair

zedmaster84 • Niveau 40: 1,000,000-2,000,000, 2,000,000 ante

Hand #177: George Holmes opened to 4,000,000 and Koray Aldemir called out of the big blind as the duo headed to the {q-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{3-Clubs} flop and opted to check. After the {8-Hearts} turn, Aldemir checked once more and Holmes bet for 4,000,000. Aldemir spent 30 seconds in and tank and came along to the {k-Hearts} on the river.

Both players checked and the next pot went to Holmes, as his {8-Spades}{4-Diamonds} for a pair of eights was enough to take it down.

Hand #178: Aldemir limped the button and Holmes knuckled it to the {9-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} flop. Holmes checked and Aldemir bet 3,400,000 in order to claim the pot.

Hand #179: Holmes min-raised the button to 4,000,000 and Aldemir filled up. The {q-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} flop went check, check, and the {7-Hearts} appeared on the turn. Aldemir checked once more and so did Holmes, which led to the {a-Clubs} on the river. The check by Aldemir triggered a bet worth 4,400,000 by Holmes and Aldemir called.

The {9-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} of Holmes were briefly shown but Aldemir won the pot with the {10-Diamonds}{3-Clubs} for a pair of treys.

Hand #176: Aldemir raised to 4,600,000 from the button and Holmes called. The {k-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{q-Hearts} was fanned out on the flop. Holmes check-called the 3,400,000 continuation-bet of Aldemir. The turn was the {k-Spades}, Holmes checked again.

This time, Aldemir did the same to see the {9-Spades} complete the board. Holmes took 39 seconds and then bet 9,000,000. Aldemir called to see the {7-Hearts}{7-Clubs} of Holmes who had a full house for Aldemir to muck.

Hand #168: Jack Oliver jammed for 35,700,000 in the small blind and Holmes in the big blind asked for a count. After one minute and 11 seconds of consideration, Holmes made the call.

Jack Oliver: {a-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}
George Holmes: {q-Spades}{j-Spades}

The {8-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{5-Spades} flop kept Oliver in the lead with a pair of eights but the {j-Clubs} turn improved Holmes to the superior pair.

Nothing changed on the {9-Hearts} river and that spelled the end for Oliver in third place. He takes home $3 million for the efforts and there will now be a short break before heads-up play gets underway.
