Martin Guiang Steals One

Martin Guiang

Martin Guiang can breathe easy now after getting his opponent to fold top pair.

Five players checked down a flop of {q-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{10-Spades} and they saw a turn of {7-Clubs}.

The small blind decided to take a stab at the pot by betting 2,500 and had Martin Guiang raise him to 5,000. Everybody else folded back to the small blind, who made the call.

On the {9-Diamonds} river, Martin made a bet of 5,000 again. The small blind thought about it and finally folded, showing {k-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds} face up.

Martin mucked his hand but later told us that he had only held {8-Clubs}{4-Clubs}!
