Korean Sunny Jung is definitely in a playful mood – as demonstrated in this hand with Makato Yoshimichi from Japan. Yoshimichi opened the pot with a raise to 525 from middle position. In the big blind, Jung three-bets to 2000 and his opponent responds with a shove all in for 16,675.
Jung has a think about it before declaring, “Let’s gamble” to the table. When he turns over 4♣ 4♥ it is indeed a gamble and hope that he’s not up against an over-pair. However, Yoshimichi does indeed hold the goods with K♦ K♣ and Jung can’t find any help on the resulting board.
Jung still has quite a few chips to play with though. His stack is now hovering around the 30,000 mark.
