Smith Loses Flip in Brutal Fashion to Bust

RazorSharpPro • Level 14: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante
Dan Smith loses a big race

Daniel Dvoress juiced it up to 40,000 from the hi-jack, only to see Dan Smith come over the top from the cutoff with a raise to 122,000 in total. Action folded around to Quan Zhou in the big blind who looked briefly interested but eventually decided against it and folded bringing the action back over to Dvoress, who wanted to know how much Smith was playing.

The two are fairly evenly stacked, though it looks like Dvoress had around maybe 50,000 more. That was enough leverage for Dvoress who moved all-in and Smith snap called.

Dan Smith: {q-Hearts}{q-Clubs}
Daniel Dvoress: {a-Diamonds}{k-Spades}

The race looked to be a one-sided one when the flop fell {4-Hearts}{q-Spades}{3-Diamonds} but the poker gods had other ideas, however. The {10-Hearts} turn gave Dvoress a faint glimmer of hope which turned into a blinding ray of light when the {j-Clubs} landed on the river to give him broadway.

Smith tapped the table as the stacks were counted down, but Dvoress had him covered and that was the end for the 2012 GPI Player of the Year and Smith departed in 13th place.
