Hichman Successfully Sets the Trap; Two Tables Remain

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

Abraham Hichman limped in under the gun and action folded around to Josias Santos, who limped behind on the button. Action was then on Sean Yu, who announced he was all in from the small blind. Hichman reraised all in and Santos folded, spelling the bad news for Yu.

Sean Yu: {9-Spades}{9-Diamonds}
Abraham Hichman: {a-Hearts}{a-Spades}

Hichman found a small sweat as the flop {7-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} and turn {8-Hearts} brought a real possibility of a backdoor straight, but the river {8-Spades} was safe and Yu found himself out in 17th.
