Joe ‘Worm’ Palma and Eilyah Asur have more or less switched spots on the BPPS leaderboard, after Palma moved all-in on the river to force a fold from the former final table big stack.
The hand was picked up on a board of with Asur leading out for 225,000. After some thought, Palma called to see the completed the board. Asur didn’t slow down, firing out 425,000, which was a sizable portion of Palma’s remaining stack.
After an inventory of his stack, Palma announced himself “all-in”, with Asur leaning back in his chair and cursing to himself before he rechecked his cards. Those cards then got ripped into the muck, with Palma asking, “You want to see the bluff?”
Asur didn’t answer but Palma didn’t have a bluff to show, instead turning over for the second nut flush. Asur shook his head before saying, “I was afraid of that.”
Asur now needs to be afraid of something else, as he’s the shortest stack left at this final table, with just over 1,000,000 chips. Palma on the other hand is trending upwards through the first half of Level 25, currently playing close to 2,200,000.
