Event #35: $5,000 Eight-Handed No-Limit Hold'em

Sweaty Double for Busquet

[user249920] • Level 16: 1,500-3,000, 500 ante

Olivier Busquet jammed it in on the button with 30,000 and was called by the big blind.

Busquet: {5-Spades}{5-Clubs}
Opponent: {a-Hearts}{5-Hearts}

On the {j-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{k-Hearts} flop, Busquet's opponent picked up a flush draw. Busquet added still more cards to fade when the {k-Clubs} turned, meaning another pair on the board would counterfeit him. The river was a brick though: {2-Spades}.

"That's always fun," Busquet deadpanned.
