Battle of the Blinds

Brian Yim

Over on Table 20, everybody folded pre-flop all the way to Brian Yim, who shoved his stack in against the smaller-stacked big blind.

The big blind, Wong Tat Yui, thought for a while and made the call:

Brian: {a-Hearts}{8-Hearts}
Wong: {2-}{2-}

Wong was ahead with the smallest pocket pair possible and he stayed that way on the flop of {5-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}.

The turn and river blanked out and Wong saw his stack climb from 20,000 to about 50,000.
