Senft's Passivity Saves Chips

[user249920] • Level 28: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

Thomas Sarra Jr. accidentally limped in when he meant to open for a raise in the cutoff, and Luis Velador limped along from the button. Maximilian Senft checked his option, and they took a {j-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} flop three-handed. Senft checked, Sarra Jr. bet 100,000, and both opponents called. The turn card was the {5-Spades}, and action checked to Velador, who bet 310,000. Senft called, and Sarra Jr. folded. Both players checked the {3-Clubs} river.

"Just ten-high," Senft said regretfully, showing ten-high diamonds. Velador tabled {7-Spades}{6-Spades} for a pair and two missed draws. Senft expressed regret at not having gotten aggressive on the turn, and Velador said he wasn't going anywhere. Senft hadn't noticed the flush draw, and he chuckled at the realization that he had saved some chips.
