Clubs Help Zinaty Keep Seat

Shamus • Level 30: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante
George Zinaty

Following a middle-position open to 100,000 by Kory Kilpatrick, George Zinaty reraised all in for 620,000 from a seat over. It folded back around to Daniel Weinman in the small blind who called Zinaty's push, and when the action got back to Kilpatrick he reraised all in for 855,000 and Weinman called once again.

The three players turned over their hands...

Weinman: {Q-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}
Kilpatrick: {K-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}
Zinaty: {A-Spades}{Q-Clubs}

Zinaty stood while the other two remained seated as the flop came {8-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{4-Spades}. "Put the ten of clubs out there," said Kilpatrick to the dealer. "Let's have a sweat."

The turn then brought the {2-Clubs} and all noted how Zinaty had picked up a flush draw. "Okay, that's enough," cracked Kilpatrick. "No more sweat, please."

Then came the river... the {9-Clubs}! "Yes!" cried Zinaty, who besides winning the main pot won a hug from his girlfriend, too.

Meanwhile, Kilpatrick survived by taking the small side pot, although is now down under 500,000.
