He didn't really, but we're all out of creative things to say.

Simon Deadman from the UK opened the button by tossing in a 5,000 chip and Antoine Saout made the call from the small blind. Jonathan Roy in the big blind had bigger plans for this hand and raised it up to, what appeared to be, 16,300. Both Deadman and Saout called and they were of to the flop.


Saout checked to Roy who made a 23,200 continuation bet. Deadman took out 23,200 from his stack, counted how much more he had, and then announced all in. Saout thought about it for half a second before folding, Roy made the call.

The flop turned out to have hit both pretty hard. Roy had the best of it but equity wise it was pretty close. Deadman held {K-Clubs}{10-Clubs} for a pair and flush draw (47.07%) while Roy held {A-Diamonds}{J-Clubs} (52,93%). The fact Roy had the jack of clubs made him a little bigger of a favorite but edges were still pretty small.

Roy faded all outs his opponent had with the {5-Spades} on the turn and the {J-Hearts} on the river. "Nice hand, good game" Deadman said as he left the Festsaal room of the Hofburg Palace.
