Lybaert Slowplays Aces To Perfection

Cottrellmkw • Level 9: Blinds 1,000-2,500, 2,500 ante
Bart Lybaert

A player limped from under the gun as did Bart Lybaert in middle position, the cutoff and the small blind. The big blind checked his option to send the players five-way to the flop.

Action checked to the cutoff on a flop of {k-Spades}{a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds} and he continued for 7,000. That got two quick folds from the blinds but calls from the under the gun player and Lybaert.

All three remaining players checked through the {5-Spades} turn to the {10-Hearts} river at which point the under the gun player checked for a third time. Lybaet now seized control, making it 30,000 to go to showdown. The cutoff called while the under the gun player folded and Lybaert turned over {a-Hearts}{a-Spades} for the flopped boat to take down a large pot late in the day.
