Kitty Can’t Hold

Yardley • Level 12: 800-1,600, 200 ante
Kitty Kuo

Kitty Kuo bet 3,200 from the big blind on the turn of a board reading {9-Clubs}{q-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{6-Spades} and got a call. The river was the {5-Spades} and a further bet of 5,200 from Kuo again got called and her {q-Clubs}{7-Clubs} lost out to the {k-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}. Not a hugely significant pot in and of itself but we wouldn’t be surprised if it didn’t have some bearing on what happened next.

The player on the button raised to 3,500 when it was folded to them and Kuo in the small blind made it 7,800. The big blind folded and when the button moved in for around 40,000 move Kuo wasted no time in making the call and tabling {a-Hearts}{q-Spades}. She had her opponent’s {a-Spades}{5-Diamonds} crushed.

The cards ran out {2-Spades}{5-Hearts}{3-Spades}{j-Spades}{5-Spades}. “Flush.” announced the dealer and Kuo calmly handed over the chips.
