Event #12: $1,500 Limit Hold’em

Up, Then Down for Abghari

Ahmad Abghari made somewhat of a recovery, but it was short-lived.

First, Abghari's {10-}{6-} made a straight on a {7-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{k-Clubs} board. Matt Matros just mucked.

Then, after calling a preflop button raise from Matros. Abghari proceeded to check-raise the {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} flop, and then bet out on the {4-Diamonds} turn. Both players checked the {j-Clubs} river and Abghari turned over {a-}{5-} to take the pot and put him back up to 900,000 or so.

However, next hand and Abghari raised, then called a reraise from Matros. Several more bets found their way into the pot on the {a-Clubs}{9-Spades}{8-Spades} flop (these two are playing at admirably high speed) and Matros bet out on the {6-Clubs} turn, then called a raise from Abghari. Matros just check-called on the {6-Diamonds}, and soon found out that his {a-Spades}{k-Hearts} was good. Abghari just mucked, and dropped right back down to around 350,000.
