There has been a lot of three-betting so far today with a very high success rate. Someone, somewhere had to play back and they did.
Matthew Ezrol opened to 1,025 from early position and was called by Ray Qartomy in the Jared Rubin three-bet to 2,800 from one more seat along. Priyan De Mel was on the button and put in a four-bet to 5,600.
This was enough to force out Ezrol and Qartomy but not Rubin who five-bet to 12,800.
De Mel tanked for a minute and then asked his opponent, "I guess you know this is the first hand I've played, right?" before he folded.
He dropped to 35,000 and Rubin rose to 38,000.
