Viktor Blom, aka Isildur1, opened a pot with aces. Ami Alibay flat called from the button, and David Eldridge tagged along. What followed was the strangest line that rockets have ever seen. All three players checked the flop. On the turn, David and Isildur1 checked, and Alibay bet 700K with trips. David ran, and Isildur1 min-raised to 1.4M.
Alibay was visibly puzzled by the action. He called, waiting for the river. On the river, Isildur1 went all-in for a pot-size bet, about 5M. Alibay used 2 or 3 extension cards, and folded!
Players ordered some food for the upcoming dinner break, and it is fun to imagine them watching the 30-minute delay stream together and wonder which was nicer: Isildur1’s river or Alibay’s fold!
