Good Fold for Chow

mnuwwarah • Level 13: 2,000-4,000, 0 ante

2-7 Triple Draw

Michael Chow bet from the small blind and Shaun Deeb was on the button and raised. There were no more cards to come and Chow had only about 12,000 left. He thought a bit and folded, and Deeb patted the table.

"Good fold," he said, throwing {7-}{5-}{4-}{3-}{2-} into the middle.

2-7 Triple Draw

The first two levels have seen Dan Shak more than double his stack. Shak came back to 48,100 but now he's sitting on 115,000.

He just added another hefty pot with three-way action caught after the last draw. Gerald Ringe checked and Mike Leah fired a bet. Shak instantly called and Ringe laid his hand down.

Leah turned up a busted {8-}{8-}{X-}{X-}{X-} and Shak claimed the pot with {10-}{7-}{6-}{4-}{3-}.

"You made me break a nine," Shak said to Leah. But it didn't matter eventually as Shak was still able to find a way to win after drawing a worse hand than a nine.

Wilkinson Doubles Rodriguez

mnuwwarah • Level 12: 1,500-3,000, 0 ante


Carlos Rodriguez was all in and drawing against Wil Wilkinson, who also needed a card on the final pull. Both players turned cards over, and Rodriguez didn't like what he saw as his {8-Clubs}{5-Spades}{2-Hearts} was inferior to the {6-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{a-Hearts} three-card of Wilkinson.

Wilkinson showed first and had the {k-Hearts}, meaning Rodriguez was live if he could find some help. He did so with the {10-Diamonds}, making a badugi for the double.
