Han Hoai's Nines Hold Up

• Level 2: 50-100, 0 ante

Han Hoai of the Sun Coast Casino in Vegas picked up a nice pot at the end of the first level of play. He raised in the cutoff position to 300 with three limpers ahead of him. The under-the-gun player re-raised all in for 425. Under the gun plus one called, the hijack folded, and Hoai called.

The flop showed {q-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{5-Hearts}. The first player checked, Hoai bet 850 and his opponent folded, leaving Hoai heads up with the all-in player. Hoai flipped up {9-Spades}{9-Clubs} and his opponent showed {k-Clubs}{j-Hearts}. The board ran out {5-Spades}, {10-Diamonds}.

Hoai's nines held up and he sits with around 3,100 chips in front of him.
