Duff Takes it to Bae


A big hand that has left another short stack in the tournament has just occured over on Table 1. It started when Sungsik Bae opened it up to 26,000 from the dealer button and Alistair Duff was in the big blind and made the call.

Both players check on a {3-Spades}{q-Spades}{8-Spades} flop and the {5-Diamonds} was revealed on the turn. This time Duff would lead for 31,000 and Bae would make the call as the {k-Diamonds} completed the board on the river.

This time Duff took his time and eventually bet 77,000. Bae looked like he just received the worst news he had ever heard. He eventually opted to call and then regretted it immediately as Duff turned over {k-Clubs}{q-Hearts} for top-two pair.
