Ah, language barriers. Table two has had a lot of action, quite a bit involving the UK’s Jay Yerby in the first few levels. He’s made a couple of shown laydowns recently, starting with a flashed on a board vs. Rokas Barzdzius as it sailed into the muck. Preflop raiser (to 800, blinds 100/200) Barzdzius had continued for 1,500 on the flop, checked the queen turn and bet 3,200 on the river, where Yerby let his hand go.
A few hands later, a bigger pot brewed. The under the gun player opened for 500, called in three spots before it got to button Yerby, who made it 2,600. Al but one mid-position player, Angel Aguaron, folded.
The flop: . Aguaron checked and Yerby checked back.
The turn: . Aguaron checked again, and Yerby threw out 1,600, which barely settled on the felt before Aguaron made it 10,000. Back to Yerby who thought long enough to need to spend a timebank card. He eventually folded, showing . In return, he was shown by his Spanish opponent.
“One of the hands I put you on…” mused Yerby, getting a mild-sounding flood of Spanish in return.
“I don’t understand, but nice hand!” replied Yerby. “Is he telling me I’m really bad?”
