Karim Gets Value Again

• Taso 21: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

Zohair Karim has been throwing some of his opponents off with his unorthodox betting today, but it surely has been working for him, as he just took a big pot off Jeff Tims to get up to over a million.

Karim raised it up to 22,000, and Tims called from the small blind. The flop came down {k-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{8-Spades}, and Tims checked to Karim, who bet out 21,000. Tims called, and the turn brought the {2-Hearts}. Tims again checked, and this time, Karim fired out nearly a min bet, 11,000. Tims called that, and the river was the {a-Clubs}.

Tims checked a third time, and like he did before, Karim overbet the river, tossing out 126,000. Tims thought for about a minute before calling, and Karim rolled over {a-Spades}{7-Spades} for two pair.

Tims tapped the table with both fists, and said "I floated the flop, turn the nut flush draw, and rivered an ace," before mucking his hand.
