Amin Cripples Schoonbaert

• Level 18: 4,000-8,000, 0 ante
Ahmed Amin

We walked up to a flop of {a-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{6-Clubs} and Ahmed Amin heads up against David Schoonbaert. After a check from Amin, Schoonbaert bet 16,000 and Amin thought for a moment before announcing "pot." It was 88,000 to Schoonbaert and he announced a pot-sized reraise, which would put Amin all in and Amin made the call.

Schoonbaert turned over {a-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} for top pair and Amin had {k-Clubs}{q-Clubs} for the flush draw. The turn was the {2-Clubs}, completing the flush for Amin. The meaningless {5-Hearts} completed the board and Schoonbaert could only shake his head as Amin raked the huge pot.
