So proclaims Ronny Gjelstenli’s patch, marking him as part of the GUTS poker tribe (who have a pretty sizeable presence here at MPNPT Manchester), and so affirms his recent opponent Leif Eklund. Multiway to a 3c 3s Ts flop, a pot-sized 3,300 bet from Eklund on the As turn narrowed the field to himself and Gjelstenli (in position). Eklund led again on the 8h river for 8,800, called after a brief delay (with ever so slight a hand tremble) by Gjelstenli.
“Nice call,” said Eklund, showing his pure bluff Qd 7d. He dropped to 5,225.
Gjelstenli showed down Ah Th and is off to a great start.
