Now in close proximity due to some shifting around the table, Fishberg and Holguin have been chatting it up. Fishberg has been needling for information about Holguin’s skill and experience in the game and getting stonewalled for information. Now, they have taken their back and forth to the felt instead.

Fishberg opened the small blind to 750k and was called by Holguin in the big blind.

Flop: 5♣3♠J♠ Pot: 1.7M

Fishberg continued with a bet of 800k and was called.

Turn: 5♥ Pot: 3.3M


River: 3♥

Fishberg stabbed once again, this time 1M. After a fair bit of thought, Holguin made the call saying “I guess I was supposed to lose this hand.” It turns out Holguin was wrong as Fishberg showed the 9♦7♦ and played the board. Holguin revealed the 10♦10♠ and rakes in he 5.3M chip pot.

While stacking the chips the banter continued… “You had to think about calling with Tens there?”
