Stausholm Done and Dusted

Level 6 : 300-600, 75 ante

After Niall Farrell opened for 1,300 under the gun, Martin Stausholm three-bet to 3,000 from the button. Jan Przysucha then four-bet jammed for 26,225 from the small blind, Farrell folded and Stausholm made a quick call.

Stausholm: {9-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}
Przysucha: {10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}

"Oh my god," Przysucha said when the {7-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{9-Spades} flop gave his opponent the lead with a set. The {5-Spades} river failed to change a thing and it looked like Przysucha was going to exit on a bad beat. Fortunately for him, that didn't happen as the {8-Hearts} spiked on the river to deliver him salvation. He made his straight to double through while Stausholm was left with just 1,600.

A short time later, Farrell opened from the cutoff and then called when Stausholm shoved his last little bit from the big blind. Farrell showed the {q-Clubs}{j-Spades} and Stausholm said he'd only looked at the {4-Clubs}, which he turned over. The dealer allowed the one-card sweat and put out the flop... {8-Spades}{6-Hearts}{4-Spades}.

"That's a good flop for you," Farrell said with a smile. Indeed it was as no matter what Stausholm was out in front. His excitement disappeared as soon as the {J-Hearts} gave Farrell the lead with a pair of jacks, and then dwindled even further when the {8-Diamonds} river paired the board. "That's a bad card for you," Farrell chimed.

Stausholm then turned over the {3-Hearts}, rapped the table and then exited the tournament floor.
