Big Stax 500

Set of Aces No Good for Pahuja; Gets Runner, Runner Flushed by Gross for Double

AnthonyThompson • Level 30: 60,000-120,000, 120,000 ante
Jeffrey Gross

Vineet Pahuja opened for 250,00 on the button and Jeffrey Gross three-bet jammed for 3,695,000 from the small blind. Michael Linster folded his big blind and Pahuja snap-called.

Jeffrey Gross: {k-Clubs}{q-Spades}
Vineet Pahuja: {a-Clubs}{a-Hearts}

Gross was way behind the pocket aces of Pahuja and nothing changed after the {6-Clubs}{7-Spades}{9-Spades} flop.

The {a-Spades} turn improved Pahuja's hand to a set but also gave Gross the flush draw.

Gross must be carrying a lucky horseshoe as he completed his flush after the dealer dropped the {4-Spades} on the river giving him another double up from which he was behind.
