Dragon Swoops in on the River

YorkshirePud • Level 15: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante

David Pham, in the small blind, checked to Thayer Rasmussen in the big blind on a board reading {J-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}. Rasmussen fired a bet of 6,700 and Pham called.

Both players checked the arrival of the {3-Hearts} on the turn, prompting they dealer to place the {8-Diamonds} onto the river. Pham became the aggressor and bet 8,500 and Rasmussen gave up.

The man known as "The Dragon" has another reason to be happy; not only did he win the pot, but he has a bet that Japan will beat Ivory Coast in their World Cup match and Japan currently lead 1-0.
