Event #5: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Can't Get Any Closer


Vincent Jacques went all in on the button and Praz Bansi considered his options for a good minute before calling.

Bansi: {k-Spades}{10-Hearts}
Jacques: {k-Hearts}{8-Hearts}

Things were looking good for Bansi when the flop dropped {a-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{q-Spades}. The {10-Diamonds} on the turn paired Bansi's hand, drastically reducing Jacques' outs. But when the {j-Clubs} fell on the river, both players made a straight and chopped the pot. Bansi looked at the board in disbelief and slowly shook his head for a moment before taking his seat.
