Gal Gets a Fold from Firsau

zedmaster84 • Level 25: 12,000-24,000, 4,000 ante

Miltiadis Kyriakides raised from under the gun on the feature table and Zoltan Gal as well as Vasili Firsau called in the blinds. The flop came {2-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{K-Diamonds} and Firsau check-raised after Kyriakides had continued for 65,000 and was called by Gal. The Belorussian made it 181,000 to go and Kyriakides folded, Gal called.

The two of them checked the {A-Hearts} turn and Gal then bet the {J-Clubs} river for 200,000. Firsau folded and claimed to have had deuces, which Gal found hard to believe. "But you had queen-jack," Firsau said to his table neighbor and current chip leader.
