Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Shak Three-Bets and Barrels Every Street

Dan Shak

From middle position, a player opened with a raise to 3,000. The hijack seat made the call before play folded around to Dan Shak in the small blind. Shak three-bet and made it 13,000 to go. The big blind and original raiser folded before the hijack seat made the call to see the flop.

The flop came down {A-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} and Shak fired 15,000. His opponent called almost right away and the dealer placed the {2-Clubs} out on the turn. Shak fired 20,000 this time and his opponent called, but took a few seconds before acting on this street.

The river completed the board with the {2-Diamonds}. It was an interesting card because not only did it bring a fourth diamond, but it paired the board. Shak motioned his hand and waved it over his chips, announcing, "All in." His opponent then began to tank.

The player sat in the tank for about four or five minutes before finally folding his hand. Shak gave another look back at his cards and then pushed them forward, not showing the table. He's up over 180,000 now.
