Winebarger Bets At Every Opportunity

Robert Gussoni opened to 600 from middle position and faced a three-bet to 1,600 from Derek Winebarger in late position. Phil Ivey called out of the small blind as did Gussoni to send the three players to the flop.

Gussoni checked for a second time on the   turn and Winebarger, unwilling to slow down, fired off 6,400. Gussoni gave it some thought before mucking to send a decently sized pot Winebarger's way.

"Good fold," Winebarger commented. "I didn't have a straight flush or a boat but I had something pretty good".

Eventually, he did fold and showed the    face up.

"Show one time," the table pleaded of Stout. She didn't, but she did tell her neighbor she had the aces.

"I didn't want you to fold preflop, that's why I just flatted. I almost put it in on the flop," said Stout.
