Sands vs. Polk in the Biggest Pot of Day 2 Thus Far
The biggest pot of the day thus far just went down.
It began when Doug Polk raised to $2,400 under the gun and David "Doc" Sands called. Scott Seiver then three-bet to $13,000 from the button, the blinds both folded, and Polk four-bet to $38,000. Sands then woke up with a five-bet to $87,500, Seiver folded, and Polk thought long and hard before moving all in.
Sands, who had $157,000 behind, hit the tank. While he pondered what to do, the table received a new player in the form of Andrew Robl, who bought in for a hefty $1.4 million. The buy-in tickled Matthew Kirk, who pointed out how entertaining it'd be for him to double through Robl, and then do it again.
Eventually Sands opted to call off and the hands were tabled.
The players held the same hand, but they still opted to run it twice to see if either of them could four-flush. The flop on the first run gave Polk a freeroll, but any hope of it coming in disappeared when the appeared on the turn. The meaningless was put out on the river for good measure.
The flop on the second run meant there would be no sweat, and just like on Day 1 of the cash game, the first pot over $500K ended in a chop.
