Timothy Silman is bust, after moving all in preflop for 22,700 over the opening raise to 3,000 from Bjorn Gravlien. Gravlien considered the call for a while before announcing, “let’s go!” as if he knew it would be a flip: his Ac Qh vs. Silman’s pocket eights.
The flop came low: 4s 5c 2c and the turn continued the trend with the 7c. There were now five clubs on board, which did not escape Silman’s notice. “One small red one,” he requested. “No,” replied the deck, bringing the 8c on the river to rub salt in the wound of his set by giving his opponent a flush.
