Wang Runs Into a Set

OHairDJ • Level 1: 100-100, 0 ante

On a flop of {8-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{6-Spades}, Michael Wang was heads up from the cutoff against a player in the small blind, who checked. Wang bet 2,000 and his opponent then check-raised to 5,000. Wang called.

The turn brought the {k-Diamonds} and the small blind bet another 5,000. Wang again called.

Both players checked on the {j-Hearts} river and the player in the small revealed {3-Spades}{3-Hearts} for a flopped set. Wang conceded and mucked.

Wang, who won a WSOP bracelet in 2015, is down early, but still has plenty of chips to work with.
