USE THE FOURS, NEIL! It’s lucky the commentary booth is down a corridor and up some stairs and in a little room, because there was shouting aplenty in the latest Neil Channing coup- this time vs. Andrew Feldman
. Channing wasn’t going anywhere on the button with 4c4s
the same hand which won him the largest pot of the night with quads – even though the tight playing Feldman
had shown strength preflop. Fair enough – he had Kd Kc
which looked to be in trouble when the flop gave Channing a set 5d 4d 3h
. Feldman just check-called Channing’s £700 bet.
The turn: Ks
That peaked interest from both players. Feldman bet out £1,700, and it was tough to predict whether Channing would raise or not, but he just called, a choice which in the end worked out for him.
The river: 6d
which was the worst card in the deck for Feldman, who went into contortions when he checked and Channing bet £3,500. Channing’s odd bet was the convincer, and Feldman passed his Kings face up, which must have come as a shock. Not as much as when Channing showed his Fours, which sparked a flurry of whingeing and rubdowns and general winding-up. I can’t hear the table-talk on the monitors in here, but whatever these two were saying back and forth to each other sent Jesse May and Dusty Schmidt into a frenzied giggling fit.
Not a terrible fold vs N C imo
