$25,000 High Roller

Maybe Leah Has His Math Wrong

donpeters • Level 16: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

From the hijack seat, recent World Series of Poker gold bracelet winner Sam Higgs opened with a raise to 18,000. Mike Leah was on the button, and he reraised to 46,000. Higgs then reraised to 111,000. Leah moved all in for around 440,000, and Higgs went into the tank. With a little over 200,000 behind, Higgs thought for a couple minutes.

"Sorry, guys," Higgs apologized after a couple minutes in the tank.

Eventually, Higgs folded the {A-Diamonds}{K-Hearts} to Leah, and Leah showed the dominated {A-Spades}{Q-Spades}.

"That's a good fold," said Leah after the hand. I was winning that one. Ace-queen suited versus ace-king off suit? It's like 65-35 me."
