Four Fades for Kirk
Scott Seiver raised to $4,000 in the cutoff, and Paul Newey made it $11,000 in the small blind. Doug Polk called from his left, and Matthew Kirk came along from the straddle. Seiver called as well, making it four to an flop. Polk bet $28,000 after Newey checked, and both Kirk and Polk called. The pot had now ballooned to about $130,000, and Polk decided to just jam for $277,000 on the turn. Kirk called right away for his last $94,000, and Seiver tanked awhile and folded.
Polk had a big combo draw but Kirk had turned two pair for a decent lead. The players decided to run it four times. Amazingly, Polk bricked all four as , , , and hit the board in succession. Kirk is suddenly healthy again with $320,000.
