Seven-Deuce is Good!

Mike Takayama

Pre-flop, Jack Torres shoved from under the gun shoved for his last 6,000 and everybody folded to Mike Takayama in the button, who made the call. The blinds folded and the cards were tabled.

To everybody's surprise, Mike flipped over {2-}{7-} off-suit, which was way behind Jack's {a-}{10-}!

Of course, being ahead pre-flop doesn't necessarily mean you will win the hand. That's exactly what Jack found out in heartbreaking fashion as the flop came {q-Clubs}{2-Spades}{7-Spades} to give Mike two-pair!

The turn brought a {10-} to give Jack hope but the river {8-Clubs} blanked out, sending him to the rail.
