I knocked out a Team PSO Member

By: EasyChips4U @ 21:02 (EDT) / 295 / Comment ( 0 )

When the 2 empty seats filled in at my table, I found Team PSO Member, CannonLee, sitting to my immediate left in Seat 6. Also joining the table was 3Karen3 in Seat 2.  CannonLee was short stacked, and I waited patiently for an opportunity to perhaps KO CannonLee, and pick up 150 pts.  Into our 2nd orbit, the following scenerio presented itself...

3Karen3: calls 200
crazyesdumno: folds

I was surprise to see only 1 caller when it got back to me in the SB.  My decision to flat, fully expecting CannonLee to go all-in,  was more to do with how 3Karen3 would play on CannonLee's all-in.  Would she just flat, or, would she try to isolate?  The limp looked a little suspect to me as she had 40K+ chips.  3Karen3 decided to call rather than isolate, and for me to make it up would be less than 10% of my own stack.  I felt this was more than reasonable as I was chasing the Bonus pts available for CannonLee's KO.

EasyChips4U: calls 100
CannonLee: raises 2667 to 2867 and is all-in
3Karen3: calls 2667
EasyChips4U: calls 2667
*** FLOP *** [3s 6c 5s]

I flopped top pair but decided to check to see how 3Karen3 wanted to play the flop.  When she followed up with a check, I put her on overs.  I was very happy to see a free Turn.

EasyChips4U: checks
3Karen3: checks
*** TURN *** [3s 6c 5s] [4c]

When the Turn completed a 4 card OESD on the board, I lead out with a min bet, more so as a feeler to see where I stood, and/or to see how determined 3Karen might be of gunning for the KO and the Bonus pts.  I expected her to call with any Broadway cards, as she was very easily priced in.  I was quite shocked when she folded, leaving it to a HU vs CannonLee.

EasyChips4U: bets 2260
3Karen3: folds
Uncalled bet (2260) returned to EasyChips4U
*** RIVER *** [3s 6c 5s 4c] [4s]
*** SHOW DOWN ***
EasyChips4U: shows [Td 6d] (two pair, Sixes and Fours)
CannonLee: shows [Ah 3c] (two pair, Fours and Threes)
EasyChips4U collected 8801 from pot
EasyChips4U wins the $0.10 bounty for eliminating CannonLee
