Lococo Goes Lococo!!

Alejandro Lococo

Alejandro Lococo raised it up from the hijack and Karim Rebei defended from the big blind. The flop came {9-Spades}{8-Hearts}{7-Hearts} and both players checked to the {k-Spades} on the turn.

Rebei led out with a bet of 140,000 and Lococo raised to 485,000. Rebei responded with a three-bet to 1,135,000 and this is where things got interesting. Lococo announced a raise but put in the wrong amount, therefore was committed to a min-raise of 1,785,000.

Rebei took the opportunity to push out a five-bet to 4,000,000 which put Lococo into the tank for at least six minutes. After looking visibly distressed, Lococo eventually announced all-in for 5,710,000.

"Oops," Rebei said to the rail as he shrugged his shoulders. He still asked for a count and gave it some thought for a couple of minutes and even got the chips ready to call. However, Rebei opted to lay his hand down and Lococo flashed the {a-Clubs}{j-Diamonds} as he started clapping and shouting "Let's go!" as he dragged in a massive pot.

Snippets of the hand, played on the outer feature table without hole cards, can be seen below (courtesy of PokerGO).
