The first all-in of Level 22 didn’t occur in a preflop confrontation but in a three-street affair where Clement Richez put Kyle Steinfelt to the test.
Richez opened to 35,000 in the cutoff and Steinfelt three-bet to 87,000 from the small blind. Richez called and the flop came out J♣J♥8♣. Steinfelt checked and Richez bet 65,000. Steinfelt came along to the 9♠ turn and both players checked.
Steinfelt bet 70,000 on the 6♠ river and Richez shoved, putting Steinfelt all-in for 283,000 total. Steinfelt wiped down his palms as he agonized over the decision. After two minutes of thinking, he called with Q♦Q♥ and had the 6♦5♦ of Richez beat.
Steinfelt is second in chips with 900,000 and Richez drops to 385,000.
