Katz and Simmons Duke It Out

ajlamers • Level 10: 2,500-5,000, 5,000 ante
Cary Katz

On a board reading {a-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{5-Clubs}, Cary Katz checked from the small blind and Sam Simmons bet 20,000 into a pot of around 40,000 from the big blind. Katz check-raised to 70,000 and Simmons shipped all in. It was met with a quick call from Katz and the cards were tabled.

Katz held {a-Clubs}{q-Hearts} and was in a great position to double up against Simmons' {a-Spades}{9-Hearts}. The river paired the board with the {7-Diamonds} but Katz still held the best hand with a queen-kicker.
