King Dan


Dan Smith is enjoying a fine start to his day at that tough balcony table.

We pick up his action as he and two other players took a flop of {2-Hearts} {K-Hearts} {A-Clubs}. The first player to act bet 700, and Yasuhiro Waki raised to 2,650. Dan Smith called in position, the bettor folded, and it was heads up to the turn.

It was the {Q-Diamonds}, and Waki check-called a Smith bet of 5,250 this time. On the {6-Hearts} river, Waki took the betting lead again, firing out a value-ish looking 6,550. Smith paused for a moment to make sure (and exhale heavily), and he made the call.

Waki tabled {A-Hearts} {K-Spades}, and Smith slammed his {10-Hearts} {J-Hearts} down on the felt with probably a bit more enthusiasm then he intended. His Broadway-turned-heart-flush is good enough to take down that nice pot, moving him up to a cozy 48,000.
