Quach Victorious over Alashkar Not Once, But Twice

• Level 14: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

We arrived at the table to catch Alashkar calling the call in of Quach.

Alashkar: {Q-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}
Quach: {A-Spades}{3-Diamonds}

The board fell {4-Clubs}{3-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{K-Spades} and Quach's pair of threes was enough to scoop the pot. This pot put Quach around 70,000.

Not more than 5 minutes later on a board of {2-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{10-Spades} Alashkar announced he was all in while heads up against Quach. Quach instantly called and turned up {Q-Spades}{Q-Hearts}. "Good hand" remarked Alashkar, who turned up {9-Spades}{9-Clubs}. The {Q-Diamonds} turned, giving Quach a set who fist pumped as the irrelevant {K-Diamonds} fell on the river. Quach is now sitting with 142,000.
