HK$1,000,000 Short Deck Ante-Only

Yong Scrambles For Chop

Jan_Kores • Level 16: 0-0, 40,000 ante
Cary Katz

Richard Yong raised to 400,000 and Cary Katz called on the button. Yong checked the {7-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} flop and Katz took the betting lead, firing 350,000. Yong called and the turn landed {8-Hearts}. Yong checked, Katz slid forward 1.3 million and Yong put him at risk. Katz snap-called with the nuts.

Katz: {J-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}
Yong: {A-Spades}{10-Clubs}

Yong held an inferior straight and Katz was very close to scoring a big double. However, the {J-Spades} appeared on the river and the pot was chopped much to Katz' disappointment.
