Seif Plays It Safe . . . and is Right!


With 20,000 in the pot and a board reading {8-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{5-Hearts}, Tony Hachem fired out a bet of 11,000, which clearly frustrated his opponent, Mark Seif, who hit the tank.

"Show me if I fold?" Seif asked.

"Up to you," Hachem replied.

Seif shot back in his chair and seemed even more perplexed. "Why did you have to say that?," he asked. "How do I fold top set?" Seif thought for a long time before folding {J-Hearts}{J-Spades} face up.

"Wow, what a great fold," Hachem complimented his friend as he showed the superior {A-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}. In fact, the whole table chimed in and congratulated Seif on a big fold.
