The Big Hands Just Keep Showing Up

Ben Abrahams

We've seen plenty of set-ups here in the tournament with big pocket pairs clashing pre-flop.

On one hand, it was Kit Kwok going all-in pre-flop with {a-Hearts}{a-Spades} and getting called by a smaller stacked player with {k-Clubs}{k-Hearts}.

The board ran out {5-Spades}{8-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}, giving no help to the all-in player and knocking him out of the tournament.

A few minutes later, we saw a player go all-in after a pre-flop raise to 6,000 by Ben Abrahams. Ben made the instant call and showed pocket aces, which were way ahead of the other player's pocket queens.

The board ran out {5-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{8-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{3-Clubs} to send the player with queens to the rail.
