I felt like a true visionary – I saw the light, I found Jesus. My spectacles were rose tinted and I felt great about my game in the 100k Super High Roller at EPT Monte Carlo.
This wasn’t to be my grand prix moment, however, I have not been crowned poker royalty. Time for the bike – I was a victim of a Shak attack. I folded Kings pre-flop – I got Kings three times in a row yesterday! What a game poker is!
How it turned out according to PokerNews
Tony G just went from roughly half a million in chips to out in the span of a few hands. Here’s what went down.
Tony G opened with a raise to 14,000 and Patrik Antonius made the call before Justin Bonomo reraised on the button to 46,000. Tony G fired back a four-bet to 114,000 and Antonius got out of the way. Bonomo moved in for approximately 400,000 and Tony G folded the face up.
Shortly after that, Dan Shak raised to 17,000 from the cutoff seat and Tony G reraised to 51,000 from the small blind. Shak moved all in for 336,000 and Tony G called. Tony G held the and had 326,000 in chips, which meant that Shak had him slightly covered. Shak held the best of it with the , but the flip was on.
The flop came down and both players nailed it. Tony G picked up top two pair, but Shak still held the lead with bottom set.
The turn was the and an interesting card. It meant that Tony G could now stay alive with a king on the river that would cause a chopped pot. Shak stormed away from the table at this point, unable to watch the river.
The river paired the board, but it was the and locked up the win for Shak. He returned to the table to see what happened and then collected his chips. Tony G was eliminated.
