Presto is Gold (Part 138)

Full Tilt $30,000 Guarantee, $100+$9, 6-handed tourney, Level 2

Starting stacks: Fuel55 (6,000)/Bruce Buffer (2,545)/CRAKURACES (945)

*** HOLE CARDS ***
3 folds to me
Fuel55 raises to 140 from the button with [5h 5d]
Bruce Buffer reraises to 760 from SB (he’s been playing quite tight for a red FTP pro)
CRAKURACES rereraises to 945, and is all in from BB
Fuel55 folds (I was tempted to call the 3-way action given I had Presto and would get my buy-in back if I busted Bruce Buffer but I elected to fold since I had a good stack going)
Bruce Buffer calls 185
CRAKURACES shows [Kd Qc]
Bruce Buffer shows [Qd Ah]

*** FLOP *** [9c 6h 2h]

*** TURN *** [9c 6h 2h] [3h]

*** RIVER *** [9c 6h 2h 3h] [4h]
CRAKURACES shows King Queen high
Bruce Buffer shows a flush, Ace high
Bruce Buffer wins the pot (2,030) with a flush, Ace high
CRAKURACES stands up

Note that I would have made the str8 flush since I held the 5h. Standard FTP RNG bullshit …

Moral of this tale: NEVER FOLD PRESTO

I've played him at his stupid cash table, major fish living off his brother's name and a little TV time courtesy of ESPN. I'm never foldig to him.

I thought you learned not to fold presto a long time ago.

Chicken shit.

If you had a good stack going, why did you fold? You know the other guy couldn't reraise at that point since the all in is not a full bet right?
