Deuce-Free does it


In this latest hand, Vincent Jacques opened to 225,000 on the button. He was called by Praz Bansi and the two took in a flop of {6-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{9-Spades}.

Bansi check-called Jacques' bet of 285,000 on the flop, and both players checked when the {5-Clubs} came on the turn. When the {k-Diamonds} arrived on the river, Bansi got Jacques to call an 875,000 chip bet and took the pot down with {2-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}.

For anyone left holding doubt, James Akenhead remarked from the rail, "That's how you play deuce-free of diamonds."

Jacques is now extremely short in chips.
