Poel Position

[user253757] • Level 10: 400-800, 100 ante

We saw a player stand to sweat the result of an all-in confrontation, and although Belgian amateur Kevin Poel was the one holding {A-Hearts}{a-Clubs}, he nervously anticipated the delivery of five board cards.

Poel's opponent held live cards with {k-Hearts}{j-Hearts}, and while the flop of {5-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} was a swing and a miss, he found a lifeline when the {k-Clubs} arrived on fourth street.

Poel now needed to dodge five outs in the form of kings or jacks, and the river produced the {9-Spades} he finally exhaled in relief, yelling "Yes!" to the heavens before retaking his seat.
