EPT San Remo: Boeken to the rail but Heitmann on track
Noah Boeken’s day never seemed to get going and he became the latest Team PokerStars Pro to be sent to the rail when he re-raised over the top of a bet worth 735, making it 3,400 to play. The flop read J-4-6.
“I think you have kings” said his opponent, adding that he intended to call. Noah showed aces but was overcome by pocket-jacks.
There was good news though in the form of PokerStars Sponsored Player Jan Heitmann. The young German pro, who also happens to be a magician as well as a pianist (a ‘piano disappearing’ act would seem obvious), now sits with 60,000 after an all-in hand that fell nicely to him.
With three limpers and a flop of Q-T-4 the big blind shoved for 6k with J-9; the under-the-gun player called with aces, whilst Jan moved in with Q-T – a nice leg up for his already above average stack, and worth a re-telling to countryman George Danzer over to check out the fuss.
