Slater Dodges Bullets

• Nível 2: 100-200, 0 ante

According to Tim Slater, he recently played a hand in which he dodged pocket rockets. It happened when Slater called under the gun and then called a three-bet to 800 from another player. When the flop came down {9-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{2-}, Slate check-called a bet and then both players checked the {a-Clubs} turn. When a {Q-} completed the board on the river, Slater checked for a third time and then simply called when his opponent bet 4,300.

Slater tabled {2-}{2-} for a flopped set, but it was no good as his opponent had turned a bigger set with {a-}{a-}. "Lost the minimum," Slater said with a hint of pride.
