The Long Shot Comes Through For Gonzalez


After Diego Gomez Gonzalez had raised, Aleh Plauski three-bet to 100,000. Gonzalez made the call and then proceeded to check the {10-Hearts}{A-Spades}{J-Spades} flop. Plauski obliged with another bet of 100,000, and Gonzalez responded by moving all in for around 500,000. Plauski called and the cards were turned on their backs.

Plauski: {A-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}
Gonzalez: {A-Diamonds}{10-Spades}

Both players had flopped two pair, and according the PokerNews Odds Calculator, there was a 95.45% chance of the pot being split; in fact, the only way it wouldn't be is if it came runner-runner spades.

Interestingly the {2-Spades} turn made that a real possibility, and increased Gonzalez's chances of winning up to 20.45%. Wouldn't you know it, the long shot came though as the {4-Spades} spiked on the river.

Gonzalez let out a shout in celebration, while Plauski sat there in disbelief.
