  • Lifman bullies Overton and everyone else by : November 1, 2015

    Ben Cade opened with a bet to 45k which Lifman smooth called. Overton came over the top for another 100k. Cade let go and Lifman shoved for another 600k. Overton tanked for a few minutes but eventually let go. The thoughts from the rail was that Overton probably had Jacks or tens but probably no bigger otherwise he would have called and Lifman was probably at A Q or A K.Lifman has now raised three hands in a row with ...

  • How many lives does Java have? by : November 1, 2015

    Nipun Java shoved from the button for his last 214k and found a willing caller in Mark Lifman in the BB. Java showed Q 9 off suit and Lifman the dominating AQ. The flop immediately raised the tension in the room:  7 8 10 giving Java an open ended straight draw. The turn Jack completed the draw and only a King would give Lifman the win. No King and Java is up to 450k again. ...
