“Let’s Gamble”

• Nível 9: 400-800, 100 ante

Serge Matta opened from early position for 1,800 saying to the table, “Ok, come on let’s gamble.” Negreanu was on the same table and in a very energetic mood responded, “Oh, you got good cards? Now you want to gamble?” Onur Guvan put the chips in for a call, Negreanu folded, PokerStars player Thomas Brader called from the small blind and the big blind folded. Three players saw a flop of {6-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{7-Spades}. Brader checked and Matta continued for 2,800 prompting Guvan to fold but Brader made the call. Turn card {j-Hearts}, another check from Brader and a bigger bet of 6,200 this time from Matta. The river was the {4-Hearts} and now Brader led out for 14,000. Matta hesitated, clearly not liking this turn of events, but it didn’t take him very long to release his hand to the dealer.
