Mackelprang Finds a Fold

Dragana Mackelprang

A player opened to 800 from the cutoff and was called by Dragana Mackelprang out of the small blind. The player in the big blind then three-bet to 2,700. The cutoff folded while Mackelprang called to send the two players to the flop.

Mackelprang checked after the     flop and then called when her opponent bet out 2,000.

The   turn saw Mackelprang check for a second time. The big blind was in no mood to slow down and tossed 5,000 into the middle. That bet was enough to convince Mackelprang to release her hand and in so doing take a small hit to her still big stack.

Levy Cracks Aces and Kings for Triple Up

Action was picked up after Itai Levy, in the cutoff had moved all in for 13,400. The player in middle position called, before Benjamin Ane, the hijack, put in a raise to around 60,000, enough to put the middle position player all in. That player made the call, and it was a three way showdown.

Itai Levy:   
Middle Position:   
Benjamin Ane:   

Levy was dominated by both of his opponents, and Ane seemed on the precipice of a double knockout and a massive stack. That all changed quickly when the     flop gave Levy a set to pull ahead of both opponents. The   turn and   river changed nobody's hand, and the main pot went to Levy with his set, tripling his stack. The side pot went to Ane, whose aces were still good to beat middle position's kings. That middle position player was promptly sent to the rail, as Levy and Ane stacked their new chips.

Levy shared with PokerNews after the fact that he had lost a pot with a set of aces on the hand right before his triple up.
