McGuiness Keeps Fighting

Bahador Ahmadi opened for a raise and John McGuiness made his standard three bet. Ylon Schwartz folded, Ahmadi made a fourth bet and McGuiness capped the action before a flop of {9-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}{K-Clubs}.

McGuiness bet again at the {6-Spades} on the turn, and Ahmadi decided not to come along.

Ahmadi Flushes McGuiness

On a flop of {2-Spades}{K-Spades}{2-Clubs}, Bahador Ahmadi check-called a bet from John McGuiness and then took the lead, betting the {A-Spades} on the turn. McGuinnes raised and Ahmadi called.

Ahmadi then check-called the {7-Clubs} on the river, before showing {5-Spades}{6-Spades} for the winning flush.

Pot For Ahmadi

With the board reading {7-Hearts} {Q-Hearts} {8-Diamonds} {8-Spades}, it's checked to Bahador Ahmadi who bets 100,000. Both McGuiness and Schwartz call and the river is the {Q-Diamonds}. It's checked to Ahmadi again who bets 100,000 and the other two fold.
