Deeb Continues to Ride the Roller Coaster


Freddy Deeb has been on quite the roller-coaster ride today. First he's up, then he's down, then he's back up. Here's one where he went down a bit.

Deeb opened to 4,500 from middle position and found a caller in John Gale from the big blind. The flop came down {K-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{5-Spades} and Gale check-called a bet of 5,500 from Deeb.

The turn was the {J-Spades} and Gale checked again. Deeb didn't slow down and fired 15,000. Gale stood strong and called.

The river was the {J-Clubs} to pair the board. Gale checked and Deeb checked.

Gale announced a king and then tabled the {K-Hearts}{3-Hearts}. All Deeb could do was muck his hand and Gale won the pot.
