Urnotindangr wins 1200 big blind pot from Prahlad Friedman

Monday, 25 October 2010

Prahlad Friedman, the best online poker player in the world circa 2004, has enjoyed something of a comeback playing under the screen name “Prefontaine” at PokerStars, specifically the $25/$50 and $50/$100 heads-up games that were his speciality on Ultimate Bet years ago.

Unfortunately for him, Scott “Urnotindangr” Palmer (URnotINdanger2) put an end to an enjoyable upswing for the rapping WSOP bracelet-winner. Friedman lost over $200,000 to Palmer in a $50/$100 heads-up NL game including a huge 1,172 big blind pot.

The hand in question began with Palmer min-raising from the button as the two had been doing throughout the match. Friedman was up to over $107,000 at this table while Palmer had just under $60,000 on the felt. Friedman made it $800 and Palmer 4-bet to $2,100; Friedman called with Jd-9s and check-raised to $12,800 on the Ks-8d-7s flop. Palmer called and Friedman improved to a flush draw and double gutshot – he moved in and Palmer snapped him off with K-K for top set, which held to ship him a $117,275 pot.
