An early piece of bad luck has proved very costly for Niall Farrell. When we joined the action, it looked as though Farrell had called a raise on the flop before checking the turn against Aleksandr Denisov.
Denisov bet 16,500 and Farrell made the call to see the on the river where the Scot checked again. Denisov bet 22,300 and Farrell thought for about twenty seconds before calling.
Denisov showed for two pair and Farrell could only shake his head and manage a wry smile. The latter was left with just 800 chips and busted shortly afterwards.
