EPT Budapest: Pittance or penance

|

The grapevine has spoken and apparently PokerStars sponsored player Johnny Lodden has decided to restrict his natural flow and only play premium hands. It comes as an act of penance you might say, following a crazy hand that saw him forced to call an all-in with 8-7.

Lodden had re-raised pre-flop only to see his opponent push all-in. Priced in Lodden called and was up against A-Q. The eight struck on the flop saving Lodden from disaster. His vow of good sense was taken.

Cut to a hand a short while later. Lodden’s new rule of premium hands takes effect at once, re-raising on the button and getting called on a flop of J-7-4. Lodden checked and his opponent checked. On the turn card three Lodden checked and his opponent checked. On the river card five Lodden checked and his opponent checked. At showdown the A-Q of his opponent was not enough to scupper Lodden’s 7-2.

He’s now up to 25,000.
