WSOP Senior’s circuit event in Cherokee, NC. The blinds are 800/1,600 with a 400 ante. I have approximately 42K in chips and villain covers. There are 9 players at the table.
Villain in 3rd position limps. I am directly to his left with KsQs and raise to 3,500. BB calls.
Pot is now 14,900 and I have 38,100 remaining.
Flop is Jc 8h 4s. BB checks and villain bets 3,000. I call.
Pot is now 20,900 and I have $35,100 remaining. Turn is 9s making the board Jc 8h 4s 3s. Villain again leads for 3,000. I call.
We go to the river with $26,900 pot and my stack at $32,100. The river is a blank and he checks.
