Wasserberg Doubles Up

Leo_Contreras • Level 21: 10,000-20,000, 20,000 ante

The flop was {q-Spades}{7-Spades}{6-Diamonds} and Daniez Wasserberg goes all in for 455,000 and the button made the call.

Daniez Wasserberg: {k-Spades}{3-Spades}{a-Clubs}{5-Clubs}
Player on the Button: {a-Spades}{4-Spades}{q-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}

The turn come {8-Hearts} which was no help to Wasserberg but the river {k-Clubs} gave him a better top pair and he scooped a big pot.

Foutty Takes Another Huge One

• Level 21: 10,000-20,000, 20,000 ante

There was a large pot of about 450,000 in the middle as the flop read {6-Hearts}{9-Spades}{k-Hearts}. Steven Foutty moved all in for about 415,000 which was for only slightly less than his opponent.

His opponent tanked for a long time, seemingly completely torn on the decision. Eventually, he tossed in the one-chip call.

Steven Foutty: {9-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{7-Spades}
Opponent: {a-Spades}{a-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{5-Spades}

Foutty was on a straight draw and was looking to connect. The turn was the{4-Spades} and the river did connect with him in a different way as the {7-Hearts} came off to give him two-pair and crack the aces of his opponent to leave him with crumbs.

Santiago Wins a Massive Pot

Leo_Contreras • Level 21: 10,000-20,000, 20,000 ante

The flop was {2-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} and the small blind bets the pot for 400,000 going all in and putting his two opponents at risk. A player in middle position folded and Emanuel Santiago made the call for his remaining 275,000.

Emanuel Santiago: {a-Spades}{a-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{j-Clubs}
Small Blind Player: {q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}

The turn was the {10-Hearts} and the river {a-Clubs} only helped Santiago with a set of aces as he scooped the pot to add to his chip count.
