Batista's Boat is Better


Over at Chad Batista's table a player in middle position had raised preflop to 600. The player to his immediate left raised to 1,800 from the hijack. When action folded to Batista in the small blind he went all in for about 24,000, having both players covered. The original raiser called, but the hijack folded.

Batista: {A-Clubs}{q-Clubs}
Opponent: {K-Clubs}{K-Hearts}

Batista's opponent seemed happy with his call, saying "I'm happy to get it in with kings against an ace anytime." His happiness wouldn't last for long.

The flop came {q-Diamonds}{k-Spades}{5-Diamonds}, pairing Batista's queen, but giving his opponent a set. When the {a-Diamonds} came on the river, Batista was still alive and drawing to a couple of outs. He found one when the {a-Spades} came on the river.

Immediately after the hand Batista said, "Thats the worst beat I ever put on anyone." He's now up to about 40,000 chips.
