Zolotow Goes From Quartering to Quartered

[user249920] • Level 9: 300-600, 0 ante

With the board reading {7-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{2-Spades}, Steve Zolotow bet from early position. His opponent on the button raised, and Zolotow raised all in for 1,100, 100 less than the next raise. His opponent called.

Zolotow: {a-Spades}{k-Clubs}{k-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}
Button: {a-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{4-Hearts}

Zolotow looked likely to quarter his opponent, as both had the nut low but Zolotow had kings for high. The button binked the {3-Clubs} on the river to make trips though, and Zolotow was the one quartered.

Amnon Filippi took a pot off Dan Heimiller.

Amnon Filippi and Dan Heimiller already had a few bets in front of themselves in a heads-up pot. Filippi bet fourth street with the board reading {8-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{5-Spades}, and Heimiller called. The river was the {7-Clubs}, and both players checked.

Filippi flipped {a-Clubs}{7-Spades}, followed by {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds} for a pair of aces and a live ace for low.

"I had a pair and a flush draw..." Heimiller trailed off as he studied his cards. "And I think I still have a pair and a flush draw."

He placed them face down, and Filippi scooped the pot.
