Vas Nunes Takes a Hit


Paul Vas Nunes put up some impressive results in the last year and a half and now he's trying to add an Australian flag to his list of cashes. That's still far away though, as he just lost quite a serious pot. Vas Nunes won Unibet Open Dublin for $151,742 back in 2011 and finished third in a World Series of Poker event last June for $290,407.

Vas Nunes three-bet to 700 from the cutoff after a player in early position had raised it up to 250. The players in the small blind gave it some thought before deciding to make the call. The initial raiser folded creating heads up action.

The flop came down {5-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{3s and Vas Nunes' opponent check-called 1,000. On the turn the {J-Clubs} hit, and once again the small blind checked. Vas Nunes bet 1,800 and his opponent called once again. On the river the {4-Hearts} hit and this time the small blind lead out for 3,600. Vas Nunes called quickly but mucked when his opponent showed {4-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} for a rivered straight.
