Borba Explodes

poolshir • Level 11: 800-1,600, 1,600 ante

Itay Borba could be heard from the other side of the room as he shouted out some Italian profanities and when the PokerNews live reporting rushed over, Borba had {q-Spades}{q-Clubs} in front of him.

The board read {q-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{k-Clubs}{j-Hearts} and it looked like Stefano Maranta had rivered the flush on him with {a-Spades}{a-Hearts}. After paying Maranta's double-up, Borba was left with 4,500.

The hand right after, Borba shoved from the late position after Ghassan Yared had raised to 3,400. Roland Israelashvili considered for a while but opted to fold. Action folded back to Yared who called. They both held {a-}{j-} and split the blinds and ante between the two of them.

Shortly after, Borba busted.
