The First Three-Bet

zedmaster84 • Level 23: 75,000-150,000, 25,000 ante

Mikita Badziakouski raised it up with the {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts} and Rui Cao defended the {Q-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}. Both players flopped a pair on {K-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{8-Spades} and Cao check-called a bet worth 250,000.

On the {7-Clubs} turn, Cao checked and Badziakouski let his shot clock run down before announcing a bet of 750,000, which forced a snap-call from Cao.

Cao won two big blinds worth back when his {J-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} rivered second pair and Badziakouski only had a pair of fives,

Badziakouski raised to 350,000 with the {Q-Spades}{7-Diamonds} and a three-bet to 900,000 by Cao followed, who had the {9-Spades}{9-Hearts}. It was the first tree-bet of the heads up thus far and Badziakouski quickly folded.
