Feature Table Two: Play is Slow and Steady

[user323482] • Niveau 33: 100,000-200,000, 30,000 ante

Not much has been happening over on feature table two while players are on the unofficial final table bubble.

Pablo Mariz holds a commanding lead with over 15 million in chips, good for a quarter of the chips in play. The rest of the players are either getting walks, or giving them. Raises are getting through preflop, and players are protecting their stacks as much as possible with just 11 players remaining and eyeing that massive first-place prize of over $1.2 million.

Hector Martin Picks the Wrong Spot

[user339872] • Niveau 32: 80,000-160,000, 20,000 ante

Hector Martin raised to 370,000 from early position and Marc MacDonnell moved all in for 2,030,000 on the button. Martin folded his pocket tens face-up and the table was in shock.

In the very next hand, Martin called a 340,000 raise preflop from Dejuante Alexander and the flop came {8-Clubs}{7-Spades}{3-Spades}. Both players checked to the {2-Diamonds} turn and again to the {8-Hearts} river. At that point, Martin decided to fire out a bet of 560,000 which was called by Alexander. Martin showed {J-}{10-} and Alexander had better with {K-Hearts}{Q-Spades}.
