One of the standout players entering the WSOP Main Event was player Alexandra Botez. The increasingly well-known chess player in the poker world represented 888poker for the first time in the world’s biggest tournament, making it to the ITM. However, the trajectory ended in a very hard failure.
Alexandra was short-stacked for most of Day 4, even joking on Twitter that she had caught ITM hand after hand. The bubble burst, and she even managed to raise some positions, reaching a second price of $17,500. The crash happened when the blinds reached 5,000/10,000.
Botez Pushes All-In Preflop There were only 82,000 chips, or 8 big blinds. She found the perfect environment to get back into the game with more peace of mind. The American has a 90 percent chance of winning the pot, which improves post-flop to 98 percent.
However, the deck predicted a different fate for Alexandra. The 1 came on the turn, giving our opponent a chance to practice. He found exactly what he needed on the river. Botez couldn’t believe it, but quickly calmed the situation down with a laugh.
