Poirier Fires Twice With No Success


On the secondary feature table, Sam Barnhart opened to 11,000 from UTG+1 and was called by John Wilson a couple of seats down. Start of the day chip leader Patrick Poirier then three-bet to 25,500 in middle position, Barnart quickly called but Wilson tanked for a little long and it almost looked as though he was going to make a move before he too elected to flat-call.

The {8-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{8-Spades} was checked to Poirier who wasted little time in firing out 50,500, Barnhart made the call and Wilson folded. The {4-Diamonds} turn saw Barnhart check-call again, this time to the tune of 85,000 before the pair saw the {3-Clubs} river and Poirier gave up, checking behind.

Barnhart flipped {6-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} and it was good enough to take the pot.
