Polk's Overbet Backfires

Paul Newey defended his big blind from a $2,400 raise out of Doug Polk, who was under the gun. Newey check-called $2,000 on the {a-Clubs}{q-Spades}{q-Clubs} flop, and both checked the {6-Hearts}. Newey checked a final time on the {3-Diamonds} river, and Polk overbet the pot with $18,600 into $10,000 or so. Newey thought a minute or so and then put in $45,000.

"This is an interesting hand," Polk said with a smile before he called.

Newey showed {a-Spades}{q-Diamonds} for a flopped boat.

According to the commentary team, Polk said he had a boat as well. He's now down to $156,000, and Newey is up to $747,000, one of the biggest winners in the game.
