Simon “Jacks” Trumper

• Level 9: 300-600, 75 ante

Simon Trumper was telling us the story of a few hands ago where he doubled up. He had raised on the button and folded to a shove from the small blind. On the next hand it was folded to him in the small blind and before he looked at his cards he warned that if it happened again he’d be calling.

He then looked down at {a-}{10-} and completed. The big blind moved all in and Trumper instantly called to see he was up against {a-}{5-} and held to double.

While we were at the table there were a few limpers and Trumper limped along. The big blind moved in for only 1,350 and with a couple of callers Trumper moved in over the top successfully isolating the all in big blind player.

Success of sorts as the big blind had woken up with {k-Diamonds}{k-Spades} and Trumper had {j-Diamonds}{j-Spades}.

No matter, the cards ran out {9-Spades}{a-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{5-Diamonds} and Trumper eliminated his man and added another 6,000 to his stack.

Time for a name change Simon?
