Deng Flops the World

John Deng opened in early position, Derrick Yamada called in the hijack seat, and the flop came {j-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{7-Hearts}. Deng check-called 65,000 from Yamada, and the turn brought the {a-Diamonds}. Deng led for 100,000. Yamada min-raised to 200,000, Deng moved all in for 605,000, and Yamada went into the tank.

He sat back in his chair with his arms crossed, studying both the board and Deng. He eventually slid forward enough chips to call.

Deng: {7-Spades}{7-Diamonds}
Yamada: {j-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}

Deng flopped a full house, but Yamada could make the best hand with an ace, jack, or ten. The river was the {8-Spades} however, and Deng doubled.

Chip Counts
Derrick Yamada 1,740,000 -790,000
John Deng 1,490,000 635,000
