Preflop, with the blinds at 600 and 1,200 and a 200 ante, Lykov raised to 2,700 from late position, and Gorey called in the big blind. On the flop Gorey checked, Lykov bet 2,800, Gorey raised to 7,200, and Lykov called. On the turn Gorey checked, Lykov bet 7,200, and Gorey called. On the river Gorey went all-in and Lykov called 48,100.


Gorey submitted a nice check raise on the flop as he correctly anticipated a continuation bluff from his opponent whom he punished with the raise. Lykov was deep-stacked and held a well disguised gutterball, and he elected to take a flyer in position to see what developed on the turn. Gorey didn’t like the fact that he was called on the flop, but his concerns were allayed on the turn when he improved to a full house. Lykov thought he loved the turn as well as it filled his straight, but he was now drawing dead. Gorey settled on a nice check call, setting the stage for his confusing open-shove on the river. Reviewing the check-raise, check call and open shove sequence from his opponent, hopefully Lykov realized something was wrong. This line looks like a full house, and Lykov must have hoped his opponent only held trips. With his well disguised hand and 2:1 chip advantage over Gorey, Lykov was bound to call. Gorey went on to finish in 34th, for $14,760.
