A Nice Spot For Kings: Nitsche Eliminates Gibert
Level 2: 75-150, ante
Yohann Gibert raises to 425 in the hijack, Dominik Nitsche three-bets to 1,100 in the cutoff and Gibert decides to see a flop out of position against a very good player...we smell danger!
Flop: Q 10 3
Gibert checks to Nitsche, who is riffling his chips faster than Sonic the Hedgehog, and he bets 1,350. Gibert makes the call and the dealer prepares to give us the turn.
Gibert once again checks and Nitsche asks to see his stack before betting 2,850. We sensed that there may well have been some previous action between the two with the way Gibert moved all-in for 9,200. Nitsche knew exactly what was going to happen and he called instantly and Gibert was in trouble.
Nitsche: K K
Gibert: K Q
The river held no surprises for Nitsche and Gibert was a goner. Nitsche meanwhile was cuddling his new stack of around 55,000
