South African Conrad Coetzer is regular fixture in the Asian poker scene and has some nice results here, including a third place in June 2011′s Macau Poker Cup: Red Dragon. Now, Coetzer is making his mark on this APT Philippines Main Event and has just eliminated two players.
In this hand, he raised it up preflop to see Abhishek Goindi just flat with A♣ K♠ in the small blind and the short-stacked big blind of Ranniel Galvez push for 6950 with A♠ 7♠. Coetzer makes the call but that was Goindi’s plan all along and he shoves his bigger stack also.
However, Coetzer doesn’t even sweat and announces a casual call. We see why when he turns over A♥ A♦ to have both his opponents crushed. The board rolls out Q♦ 3♠ 2♥ 8♥ 9♦ and the South African rakes in another juicy pot, sending his stack up to around 100,000 to take the chip lead.
