Young Gets Hero Called


The action folded to a player in the small blind who raised to 1,400. Jordan Young three-bet to 3,700, and his opponent called. The flop came down {4-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}, and Young's opponent check-called 6,000.

The turn was the {5-Diamonds}, and Young's opponent check-called another bet - this one was worth 7,700. The river was the {2-Spades}, and Young's opponent checked a third time. Young moved all in for effectively 15,000, and his opponent tanked before saying, "Alright, I'm all in.

Young showed king-high, and his opponent opened up {a-Spades}{4-Spades} for just a pair of fours. They were good, but the dealer accidentally mucked his hand and pushed the pot to Young. The entire table, including Young, protested, the hand was re-opened, and the pot was pushed to the correct player.

Dabul Done

Shamus • Level 10: 400-800, 100 ante

A short-stacked player on the button open-shoved all in from the button, then it folded to an even shorter-stacked Veronica Dabul in the big blind. Dabul checked her cards and quickly called, tabling {9-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} to her opponent's {2-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}.

The flop came {5-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{7-Spades}, and it appeared as though Dabul might be doubling back over 20,000. But the turn brought the {2-Spades}, giving her opponent a set. The river was the {6-Diamonds}, and Dabul is out.
