Sands Doubles After Great Flop


We didn't catch any of the action, but we went over to David "Doc" Sands's table and saw that he was in the middle of a huge pot. The flop read out {a-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{7-Clubs}, and Sands had gotten the rest of his nearly 750,000 in chips in the middle. Giuseppe Pastura looked him up, and when the cards were flipped, Sands was well outfront.

Sands: {7-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}
Pastura: {a-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}

Despite Pastrua flopping top pair top kicker, he was miles behind Sands, who flopped bottom set. Despite being well out front, we all know thats its never easy in poker, as the {8-Diamonds} hit the turn, giving Pastura outs for a better full house. Needing an ace or an eight on the river to score the sick suckout, Pastura whiffed, as the river came the {10-Spades}.

Sands is now sitting on 1.5 million, while Pastura is down to 2 million after that hand.
