Hideki Flexes Stack

RazorSharpPro • Level 4: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante
Sahashi Hideki

Japan’s Sahashi Hideki is flexing his big stack and has just used it like a club to beat tablemates Andrew An and Phachara Wongwichit into submission. Hideki was the initial aggressor, making it 4,600 to go from the hi-jack and he picked up several callers with An (button), Choon Tong Siow (small blind) and Wongwichit (big blind) all making the call to take the action four-way to a flop of {8-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}.

Both blinds checked the action over to the Hideki, who fired for 12,000 with An and Wongwichit making the call and Siow bowing out, taking the action three-way to the {2-Spades} turn.

Wongwichit checked again and Hideki bet big, splashing out 35,000 in blue 5,000 chips, which was enough to deter both opponents.
