Vang Eliminates Sandness Again

mnuwwarah • Level 17: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante
Mark Sandness was the victim of a three-outer.

It won't be two Mid-States Poker Tour titles in his home state for Mark Sandness, at least not for awhile. Kou Vang, it seems, is his kryptonite.

According to players at the table, Sandness opened for 11,500 in early position and got shoved on by Kou Vang in the big blind. Sandness called it off.

Sandness: {k-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}
Vang: {a-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}

Vang's three-outer materialized immediately on the {a-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{8-Clubs} flop. Fourth and fifth streets were {9-Hearts} and {10-Hearts}, no help to Sandness.

"Sorry, man," Vang said.

Vang, who ousted Sandness from MSPT Golden Gates in March by turning a set of nines all in preflop against Sandness' overcards, now holds two wins by KO over the MSPT Running Aces champion this season.
