Tiit Piller has been dealt massive pairs three hands in a row now – but hasn’t managed to make a lot out of them.
First, he was dealt under the gun and got called by Jussi Mattila holding in the small blind and Peter Pihlstrom with in the big blind. All three players checked the flop though; Piller called a small bet on the turn, and Mattila checked the Ts river as well. Pihlstrom refused to take the bait and checked behind, leaving Mattila to pick up the pot with his full house.
Next hand, Piller pushed with from the big blind over a raise from Cody Wagner ( ) and a reraise from Jussi Mattila ( ). Both players folded, and Piller picked up a pot somewhat smaller than we suspect he would have liked.
And the next hand, Piller woke up with ! This time it folded around to him in the small blind, and there was no messing around – he just shoved. Paul Johnson was not interested with , and Piller just picked up the blinds and antes.
