Max Steinberg can't seem to avoid a pot and why should he, every pot he plays he seems to win. recently we caught him raising it up to 35,000 from the cut-off. Joseph Marzicola made the call from the button, as did Matt Stout from the small blind.

The flop came     prompting a check from Sout. Steinberg wasn't going to allow any checks and bet out 50,000. Marzicola raised and made it 150,000. Stout folded and Steinberg made the call.

The   on the turn slowed Steinberg down and he checked. Marzicola however bet out, making it 250,000. Steinberg made the call and both players were witness to the   on the river. Both players thought enough betting had taken place and they knuckled for checks.

Marzicola flipped over    for top two pair and that was enough to take it down.

Ryan Laplante opened for 54,000 from the cut-off and immediately faced an all in raise from Bradley Kopelson on the button. The blinds folded and action was back on the shorter stacked Laplante who made the call for his remaining 239,000.


The board came       and Laplante's aces were best. Kopelson was forced to send over a chunk of his stack because his ace jack came up short and now sits around 330,000.
