Ruzicka Runs Into Aces

YorkshirePud • Level 8: 250-500, 50 ante

Vojtech Ruzicka raised to 1,100 from the cutoff and faced a three-bet to 2,500 from the button. Ruzicka leaned forwards to get a better view of his opponent's stack before announcing all-in. No sooner had those words left his mouth, his opponent had called.

Even before the cards were flipped onto their backs Ruzicka knew his were in trouble. The Czech pro turned over {9-Clubs}{9-Spades} and was shown {A-Diamonds}{A-Spades} for his troubles.

An ace-friendly board reading {2-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}{2-Spades}{K-Diamonds} came out and Ruzicka handed over 16,000 of his stack.

At a different table, William Reynolds faced a similar situation. After raising to 1,000 from the button, the small blind raised all-in and Reynolds went into the tank. He emerged with a fold, but his face told a story that he possibly wanted to call.
