Savage Sets Sail for Victory

• Nivel 6: 250-500, 50 ante

A player in late position made it 1,200 and Matt Savage in the small blind made the call. The dealer flattened out a {6-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{4-Clubs} flop and it was here that both players checked. A {k-Diamonds} fell on the turn, allowing Savage to seemingly take control of the hand and bet out 1,500. After a mild tank session his opponent called.

The {7-Hearts} river however slowed Savage down as he opted to simply knuckle. Savage's opponent then bet out 800. Savage immediately said call and flipped over {k-Clubs}{10-Hearts} for a pair of kings. Savage's opponent showed {8-}{8-} for a weaker pair, and the losing hand. Savage now sits around 64,000 in chips.
