Pair Of Deuces Good For Ryynanen

Level 8 : 300-600, 75 ante

The action folded around to Vanessa Selbst in the small blind and she opted to just complete her small blind. Sampo Ryynanen was the big blind and he raised to 1,800. Selbst queried how much the raise was for before making the call.

The {2-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} flop saw Selbst check-call a 1,800 bet from her sole opponent. The {4-Clubs} turn saw Selbst go on the attack and make it 2,800 to play, a bet that Ryynanen quickly called. The {10-Spades} river looked like it was going to see a bet from Selbst but she pulled back at the last second and checked. Ryynanen checked behind.

"I have seven-high," said Selbst.

An embarrassed looking Ryynanen flipped over {5-Spades}{2-Diamonds} and Selbst showed the {7-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}. One thinks Ryynanen's image may now be tarnished somewhat.
