Pregowski Wins with Four-Deuce Off

Jaxon • Level 10: 600-1,200, 1,200 ante

Krzysztof Pregowski appears to be having a grand old time win or lose. He just won some chips before giving them back.

In the first hand, Pregowski raised to 6,000 from early position and was called by Chinthaka Fernando in middle position.

Both players checked the entire {k-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} board.

Fernando turned over the {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds} and the table got a good laugh after Pregowski turned over the {4-Clubs} for a rivered pair. They got an even better laugh after he turned over the {2-Spades}.

The next hand, Gary Miller opened the button for 3,200 and Pregowski called. Pregowski check-called a bet of 2,800 after the {3-Clubs}{q-Hearts}{9-Spades} came on the flop.

Pregowski checked in the dark before he called a bet of 3,400 after the {8-Clubs} came on the turn. He checked in the dark again before he called a bet of 4,200 after the {6-Clubs} came on the river.

Miller turned over {9-Hearts}{5-Clubs} and won the pot after Pregowski showed {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}.
