Ravnsbaek Loses a Little Ground

Simon Ravnsbaek

Danish pro Simon Ravnsbaek was the player to start the betting off, raising to 650 from UTG+1. The action passed to Nikolay Vershinin — who was seated in the hijack --and he instantly called; it would not be the last time Vershinin would act lightning fast. Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier also called, the Frenchman being on the button.

The {10-Spades}{k-Clubs}{4-Spades} flop saw Ravnsbaek continue with an 1,125 bet and no sooner had his chips hit the blue felt beneath them, Vershinin called. ElkY had seen enough and he folded.

The {7-Spades} turn slowed Ravnsbaek down and he tapped the table and checked. Again, Vershinin immediately reached for chips and bet 7,000. Three instant actions in a row indicated Ravnsbaek was beaten and he let his hand go.
