In the Battle of Britain it's Alex Goulder who's getting the better of Zimnan Ziyard at the moment, the British duo have clashed in two pots since the break with Goulder winning them both.
In the first Goulder opened to 33,000 from under-the-gun and called when Ziyard three-bet to 85,000 from the small blind. The two players checked all the way to the river on a board at which juncture Ziyard bet 102,000. "Just a call," said Goulder. "Do you have an eight?" asked Ziyard as he showed , indeed Goulder did as he opened .
"You're running like God or Jesus, or maybe both, what shall we call you?" asked Alexandre Amiel. "Mary," replied Goulder.
Then two hands later Marko Laine made it 35,000 to go from a stack of 300,000, Ziyard called from the cut-off and after asking Ziyard how much he had back (540,000) Goulder called from the small blind. The flop checked through and the hit the turn. First to act Goulder bet 55,000, Laine passed, Ziyard made it 113,000 to go and Goulder smooth called. The river went check-check and Goulder showed to win the hand.
