Analysis

The Super High Roller Bowl Online series hosted a total of 28 high-stakes tournaments in late May, with the centerpiece of the whole affair being the $102,000 buy-in SHRB main event. The tournament attracted a total of 50 entries, with a field that included many of the very best no-limit hold’em poker players in the world. Among those stars of the game was Linus Loeliger, a Swiss poker pro known as “LLinusLLove” online. He is a regular participant in the highest-stakes online games, and recently began to transition into playing more high roller tournament events. He has already accrued more than $1.8 million in live tournament cashes with just five recorded results to his name. In this hand Loeliger clashed with 2016 Card Player Player of the Year award winner David Peters. He opened K-Q offsuit from the button and called when Peters three-bet to 7.5 big blinds. Peters had made the re-raise with pocket tens. He flopped top set and led out for a smallish bet of 140,000 into the pot of 645,000. Loeliger continued with his K-Q high and possible backdoor outs. The turn brought the A´ to give Loeliger a gutshot draw at the Broadway straight. Peters might very well view the ace as a good card to fire a second barrel with when bluffing, as he would likely continuation bet his ace-high hands on the flop after three-betting preflop. Peters bet 231,250 and Loeliger elected to call, leaving himself with just 661,874 while the pot ballooned to nearly 1.4 million. Loeliger might have expected Peters to give up with his bluffs after being called on the flop and turn. In this instance, though, Peters had flopped a very strong hand. He shoved for value on the river and Loeliger got out of the way after having committed more than half of his stack to the hand. Despite the setback, Loeliger did go on to cash in this event, finishing sixth for $250,000.
