Outcome

Preflop, with the blinds at 400 and 800 and a 100 ante, Todd Terry raised to 2,000 from late position, Moorman reraised to 4,800 from the button, Gregg reraised to 11,800 from the big blind, Terry folded, Moorman went all-in, and Gregg called.

Analysis

Fresh off the win of his first major at the 2014 WPT LA Poker Classic, Moorman gives us a glimpse into his extremely aggressive preflop play. After trying to pick off a potential steal attempt from Terry with a three-bet, Moorman doubled down undeterred by Gregg’s cold four-bet out of the blinds. Moorman was hoping Gregg was also up to a steal, making a move based on the hostile dynamics between late position openers and the players they try to loot in the blinds. Moorman’s deep stack and the signs of strength from an accomplished opponent might have made the play unnecessarily risky, but these types of preflop antics are part and parcel of Moorman’s success both live and online. Gregg had Moorman in a bad spot, but a lucky flop gave Moorman the open-ended straight draw and Gregg a sweat. Gregg faded the draw, and his new found chips helped carry him to the final table where he finished in 7th for $189,244.
