Hands #25-30: Bui Claws His Way Back Into Contention

[user169806] • Level 21: 8,000-16,000, 0 ante
Dean Bui

Hand #25: David Martirosyan received a walk in the big blind.

Hand #26: Action folded to Martirosyan in the small blind and he raised to 32,000. Ahmed Amin called in the big blind. The flop came down {2-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{J-Spades} and both players checked.

Both players checked the {A-Clubs} on the turn. The river was the {A-Diamonds} and Martirosyan led for 16,000 and Amin looked him up.

Martirosyan turned over {Q-}{J-} and added more chips to his stack.

Hand #27: Martirosyan opened to 32,000 from the cutoff and won the blinds.

Hand #28: Kazu Oshima received a walk in the big blind.

Hand #29: Martirosyan raised to 32,000 from late position and Ahmed Amin potted for 120,000 from the next seat along, leaving 18,000 behind. Oshima folded his small blind, Dean Bui puffed his cheeks out as he tried to figure out the best move to make. He eventually settled on a fold.

Martirosyan, knowing his opponent was essentially all-in, folded.

Hand #30: Martirosyan opened another pot with a raise to 32,000 from middle position. Bui raised all-in for 112,000 from the small blind. Gregory Kolo folded from the big blind and Martirosyan called.

Martirosyan: {4-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}
Bui: {10-Spades}{10-Diamonds}

“Two tens on the flop,” said Bui.

He didn’t receive two but he did flop a set when the first three community cards ran out {Q-Spades}{A-Clubs}{10-Clubs}. The players asked for the {J-Clubs} to make things interesting, but the turn was the {5-Hearts}, which locked up the hand for Bui. The meaningless {Q-Hearts} landed on the river and Bui doubled up.
