A player in middle position raised to 17,000, and the player on his left called. Josh Arieh three-bet to 41,000 from the button. The original raiser made it 95,000 to go, the squeezed player folded and Arieh made the call.
The flop came , and both players checked. They again checked through the turn. A hit the river, and both players again declined to bet. Arieh's opponent showed for ace-high, while Arieh showed for top pair. His opponent winged his cards across the table in frustration, muttering to himself.
"Lucky," Arieh said.
"Lucky he reraised," the player who called and then folded preflop said. "I folded pocket sevens."
"That's why I said lucky," Arieh said with a smile.
