It was a five-way flop when the under-the-gun player limped, Max Silver called in the cutoff, and the button and both blinds came along. The dealer slid out and action checked to the player who open-limped preflop. He led out for 7,000, Silver called, and the other three players folded.
The turn was the and the same player bet again, this time for 16,000. Silver called and the dealer flipped over the on the river. Not giving up, the player fired a third time. He made it 28,000 and Silver called. "Good call," the bettor said.
Silver flipped over for two pairs, a better hand than the in the pocket for his opponent.
