Event 16: Two Fold or Not Two Fold

$2500 + $200 Championship NLH

Chris Marrone successfully folded A-K against Ken Lenskold's pocket Aces earlier so after hitting a set of twos on a flop of Q-2-5 he went in the tank after Ken shipped all his chips in the middle.

Marrone was either not thinking or over-thinking and instead of insta-calling he talked himself out of the call putting Lenskold on a set of fives.

"He showed the two's and I only had A-Q so I was praying he would fold" said Ken.

Ken's tight table image was so solid that Marrone laid down his set of two's and Ken flipped over the A-Q.

Marrone is beating himself up for the fold that leaves him with only 17,000 but I still think it showed discipline on his part. I mean he was correct in folding the A-K vs. Ken's Aces earlier.

Ken has built up to 53,000 as we head towards the end of the night.

"I'm hanging tough" said Ken, getting ready for Tuesday.
