Having defended his big blind, Max Silver check-raised a continuation bet of 500 to something in the neighbourhood of 1,800. The flop was Kh 4c 3c.
Golder, the button, decided to call. The possibility of trips or a full house arrived on the Ks turn. But fourth street went check check.
The river was the 2h, both frontdoor clubs and backdoor hearts had missed, but some straight draws completed.
Mr Silver, undeterred by the surname of his opponent, decided to represent a missed turn check-raise with a hefty overbet, 8,000. Golder didn’t have much in the way of thinking when it came to either the option of folding or raising. He had improved to the wheel with Ac 5s and scooped a chunky early pot, just a moment after Silver tabled Jh 6h.
