Hannawa Doesn't Fall Into Pierce's Trap

[user68268] • Nível 6: 250-500, 0 ante

Danny Hannawa and Paul Pierce just played another pot together, and this time it was Hannawa getting the best of Pierce once again, but in a slightly different way. Pierce had laid a trap for Hannawa on the river, but Hannawa didn't fall for it. Here's what went down.

Pierce raised to 1,000 from under the gun, and Hannawa called in the cutoff seat. The big blind also called, and the dealer ran out the {Q-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{5-Spades} flop. After the big blind check, Pierce bet 1,000. Hannawa raised to 2,500, the big blind folded, and Pierce called.

The turn was the {7-Spades}, and Pierce checked. Hannawa bet 4,200, and Pierce began to hem and haw a bit over the bet. Eventually, he made the call.

The river was the {8-Spades}, and Pierce checked. Hannawa paused for a few moments, then checked behind.

Pierce announced a full house and showed the {Q-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}, having flopped queens full of fives. Hannawa showed the {8-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} from his hand for a weaker full house and Pierce was shocked.

"Why'd you check the river?" Pierce asked, to which Hannawa just smiled.

"He knew something," chimed in Paul Volpe from next to Pierce. "He had a read."
