Pete Linton's poker career was born in the same fire that produced EPT champion Julian Thew and nose-bleed specialist Sam Trickett. The trio used to all play in the same Nottingham cash games a few years ago before all three saw respective success.
Dejan Divkovic had opened to 600 preflop before Linton made it 1,600 from the button. Divkovic called to see a flop where both players checked. Divkovic led for 2,000 on the turn but Linton called to see the on the river. This time Divkovic was more cautious and he checked.
Linton fired a bet of 3,000 which had Divkovic tanking for several minutes before the latter elected to give up the hand.
