Three of a Kind

[user253757] • Level 4: 75-150, 0 ante
Mukul Pahuja

Whenever three of the game's brightest stars are all seated at the same table, our reportorial interest is piqued, but with Scott Clements, Joe Serock, and Mukul Pahuja in the #5, #6, and #7 seats, respectively, we stopped by catch a little pro-on-pro combat.

Although Clements and Serock declined to enter the pot we witnessed, Pahuja decided to test the waters with a 400 c-bet on the {8-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{5-Hearts} flop after the big blind checked the action.

That player sprung a trap though, raising the minimum to 800 to draw a stare from Mukul - who just recorded one of the most impressive seasons ever on the WPT circuit, ultimately winning Player of the Year honors.

Pahuja called the raise to see the turn come {a-Spades}, and both players checked to see the {9-Hearts} complete the board on the river. Two more taps of the table led to a showdown, but Mukul mucked when his opponent rolled over {8-Hearts}{10-Hearts} for the winner.
