Thurlow Leaves Ghanem Short

HillKerby • Level 26: 25,000-50,000, 50,000 ante

Justin Thurlow was in the cutoff and opened to 100,000. Acton folded to Saad Ghanem, who defended his big blind and the two saw the flop come {2-Clubs}{j-Spades}{q-Diamonds}. Ghanem check-called a continuation-bet from Thurlow for 110,000 and the turn came {q-Diamonds}, where action went check-check.

Ghanem fired out 200,000 on the river {4-Hearts} and Thurlow thought for about 40 seconds before making the call.

"King high," said Ghanem. Thurlow immediately tabled {5-Spades}{4-Spades} for a rivered two pair, queens and fours, and Ghanem sent his hand to the muck.
