Event #19: $2,500 Limit Hold'em / Six Handed
Days: 3

Set Over Set?

Jay Pinkussohn raised from the cutoff and received a call from Gabriel Nassif in the small blind. Alexander Kuzmin then three-bet from the big blind, which prompted Pinkussohn to get out of the way. Nassif made the call and it was heads up to the {9-Diamonds}{A-Spades}{K-Clubs} flop. It went check-bet-raise-call before the dealer burned and turned the {8-Clubs}.

Nassif bet, Kuzmin raised, and the {5-Diamonds} was put out on the river after a call. This time Nassif check-called Kuzmin's bet, only to watch his opponent flip over {A-Clubs}{A-Hearts} for a flopped set.

Nassif shook his head before tossing his cards in the muck. "Set over set," Nassif stated. "I had nines."
