Bad Cards Turn Good for Abouaf

mnuwwarah • Level 19: 5,000-10,000, 10,000 ante

Chaofei Wang shoved all in for 97,000 in the big blind over a button open from Dan Abouaf to 21,000.

"I have bad cards," Abouaf declared after getting the count, but he called anyway.

Those turned out to be {j-Clubs}{4-Clubs} but they were live against {a-Hearts}{5-Hearts}. The {k-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{6-Spades} brought air for both players but the {10-Clubs} turn meant Abouaf picked up a flush draw. He paired on the river with the {j-Diamonds} but that was enough to beat ace-high.
