€25,000 Single-Day High Roller II

Hajiyev Doubles Through Toma

HillKerby • Level 10: 2,000-5,000, 5,000 ante

Tsugunari Toma opened to 12,000 in the cutoff and was three-bet all in for 95,000 by Ramin Hajiyev, who was on the button. Action made its way back to Toma and he proceeded to think about his decision for a few moments.

Hajiyev told him that he knew he was really considering what to do and then proceeded to provide some words of encouragement, trying to talk Toma into a call. Eventually, he said that Toma wasn't going to get him twice.

Toma was unsure of what he heard, so Hajiyev gave him a reminder of when Toma had knocked him out previously today.

"Ah, yes. Okay!" said Toma, throwing out four T25,000 chips to call.

Ramin Hajiyev: {a-Spades}{k-Spades}
Tsugunari Toma: {5-Spades}{5-Diamonds}

The table erupted upon seeing Toma's hand: the excitement was palpable as to how Hajiyev had actually convinced Toma into calling with the best hand.

"I can't lose to you twice," insisted Hajiyev.

The flop came {j-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{3-Spades} to give Hajiyev four more outs to Broadway, one of which would come on the turn {10-Hearts} to lock in his double before the river {j-Diamonds} completed the runout. Hajiyev was paid the double, talking about how he tried to bait a call because of the likelihood that Toma had a worse ace as he stacked his newly-earned chips.
