Tough Spot For Butler


Ashly Butler is our short stack and he just raised to 40,000 from the button. Thayer Rasmussen was in the small blind and he three-bet to 60,000. Butler called and the flop came down {5-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}. Rasmussen bet 20,000 and Butler followed with the call.

The turn was the {9-Spades} and Rasmussen hesitated before deciding to check. Butler checked behind and the river was the {Q-Spades}. Rasmussen grabbed chips and threw out a 40,000 bet which got Butler talking to himself. Every bet counts at this point and Butler tanked for a bit before folding.
