Tough Laydown

Bojana Weimer leads out for 1,600 UTG and Jim Pak makes it 5,000 from middle position. Action folds around to Candida Ross-Powers who asks for a clarification on the raise. She folds as does BB Joe Fernandez.

The flop os Q♦️ 7♦️ 4♦️, Weimer checks and Pak snap-shoves for what looks to be about 5x pot. Weimer asks for a count and the dealer says it is 53,325 (see, it WAS about 5x pot).

Weimer seems to be trying to talk herself in to a call.

"Why would you shove for so much ... do I call and end up chipleader?" she says.

"Do I double up or bust," says Pak.

Weimer finds a fold and shows K♦️ K♣️

Pak shows A♠️ A♥️

"Good fold, I don't shove there if I have A♦️, but I had no diamonds," says Pak.

There was a LevelUp as I wrote this, so action is now at

Level - 9
Blinds - 400/800
Antes - 100
Players Left - 68
