Nanji Displays Her Acting Skills

Fatima Nanji

Fatima Nanji was heard telling a friend, "These four blinds? That's all I need... I'm going to take these and win the entire tournament!"

Nanji was first to act and after peeking at her cards, proclaimed "I'm all-in!" as she tossed in 10,000. Action folded around to the player in the cutoff who held for a moment before shrugging and tossing in calling chips. Both blinds and the button folded and they were heads up.

Cutoff: {k-Hearts}{10-Hearts}
Fatima Nanji: {k-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}

The flop of {3-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{q-Clubs} gave Nanji's opponent a gutshot straight draw. This made some players at the table react verbally. When the {3-Hearts} came on the turn, the table erupted as Nanji's opponent had a flush draw now as well.

The {a-Diamonds} river made the table settle down and Nanji's neighbor on her right said, "I should have known. With your speech and everything I should have known!"

Nanji flashed a large smile as she pulled in her pot.
