Awwad Leaves Cage Short, Then Sends him Home

GeoffFisk • Level 19: 5,000-10,000, 10,000 ante
Ryan Awwad

Tom Cage bet 80,000 from the small blind with the board reading {9-Spades}{8-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}, and Ryan Awwad made the call from the hijack.

Cage bet another 150,000 on the {3-Clubs} river, and Awwad made the call. Awwad took down the hand with {6-Diamonds}{6-Spades} for a turned straight, besting Cage's {a-Hearts}{7-Hearts}.

On the following hand, Cage went all in preflop for his last six big blinds, with Marshall Barnes and Awwad both calling. Barnes folded on the flop when Awwad went all in, and Awwad eventually took down the pot with {k-Clubs}{q-Clubs} against Cage's {k-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}.

Cage goes out in 11th place for $3,491.
