To get fans primed and ready for a summer full of poker, Poker Central has rebooted “Situational Saturday.” Each week, we’re taking a hand from a PokerGO live event and giving you a chance to put yourself in different high stakes situations from “Poker After Dark,” Poker Masters, and more. Then, we’ll solve the situation and give away a PokerGO subscription in the process.
Our opening Situational Saturday hand was taken from one of Poker After Dark‘s biggest cash games. The three-day “Rumble with Jungle” series opened with a high stakes sit & go, but concluded with two nights of mind-numbing $300/$600 No Limit Hold’em cash game. Both cash games played above the rim, but Matt Berkey had the highest-flying play of the week.
In an over $250,000 pot, Berkey moved all-in on the turn in a blind versus blind encounter against Daniel Cates. “Jungleman” held pocket kings and faced a decision for his remaining stack, which was hovering near $160,000. While Cates internally ran through his options while he was in the tank, for over 10 minutes, Berkey explained his play after-the-fact through his Solve For Why Chronicles vlog.
The $300/$600 hand was brought back down to earth and fitted for a regular $2/$5 No Limit cash game for Poker Central’s first installment of Situational Saturday.
You're dealt kings, but get put to the test on the turn.
