Yang Busts One, Staszko Stacking

Yardley • Level 1: 25-25, 0 ante

Jerry Yang opened for 75 from first position and faced an all-in from the player a couple of seats to his left. The player in question though only had 475 chips left and when the other players folded Yang put in the call.

Yang had {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts} and acknowledged the good hand of his opponent who tabled {k-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}. The board ran out {2-Spades}{q-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}. Yang said, “Sorry buddy.” as his turned trips sent the player to the rail.
Martin Staszko on a nearby table has come flying out of the traps and is already sitting with 7,000 chips, more than double his starting stack.
