Maddah Takes One


There was a late position limp before the player in the cutoff raised to 3,000. There were a few folds before Wally Maddah three-bet to 6,500 from the big blind.

The player in the cutoff called and they saw a flop of 7d5s4h. Maddah bets 15,000 and the cutoff goes into the tank.

“I should shove, ” said the cutoff. “But I’ll just let you have it.”

The cutoff shows 8h8d before he mucks his hand.

“I would have snap-called,” replied Maddah.

Maddah tables QdQs and grows his stack to 56,000 as we inch closer to the second break of the flight.
