Allen Bari Wins Showdown Showdown
Level 1: 50-100, ante
Allen Bari raises to 300 from under the gun and the player in the cutoff calls. The flop comes down J53 and Bari bets 325. The other player calls and the turn brings the 4. Bari bets 700 and his opponent raises to 1,650. Bari calls and the river is the A. Bari checks, the player in the cutoff bets 3,500, and Bari calls without hesitation.
Then the players sit for a good ten seconds, motionless. The player in the cutoff eventually taps the table with his cards and slides them towards the muck. Bari waits for the dealer to start pushing the pot in his direction and starts t muck his hand as well.
"Wait," says the player in the cutoff. "He has to show what he has, doesn't he?"
The dealer tells both players, "Look, one of you is going to have to show your hand in order to win this pot." After a little more hesitation, both players decide to turn their cards face up. The player in the cutoff shows 910 for just ten-high and Barri's AQ for a rivered pair of aces takes the pot.
Allen Bari - 39,500
