Event #33: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Eslami Cannot Get There

[user38873] • Level 14: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante

Gualter Salles raised to 4,200 from early position and two seats over, Ali Eslami three-bet to 10,700. Salles asked his opponent how much he started the hand with and then made the call once he got the reply, "about 42,000." On the {6-Spades}{8-Spades}{3-Hearts} flop, Eslami pushed all in, but 100 chips to the middle of the table and Salles called, turning over his cards in {6-Hearts}{6-Clubs}.

The dealer was at first confused but Salles asked, "What's the matter, he only got 100 chips behind?" The dealer then fanned the {9-Diamonds} turn and Salles threw in a chip. Eslami called off and showed {Q-Spades}{10-Spades}. His flush draw would not complete as the {K-Clubs} river was none of his outs.

Only a few seconds later, Joshua Rotenberg headed to the payout desk.
