Makhija Flops Set, Loses Chips

Paul_Oresteen • Level 5: 200-400, 50 ante
Amit Makhija slid below the starting stack.

Amit Makhija opened from under the gun to 1,000 and a late position player raised it up to 2,350. Action folded around back to Makhija and he called. The flop came {3-Diamonds} {5-Spades} {8-Diamonds} and Makhija check-called 2,600. The turn came {7-Diamonds}, Makhija checked and his opponent bet out 5,400.

Makhija put out his stack of 5,000 chips putting his opponent all in. The player called and tabled {J-Diamonds} {10-Diamonds} for a flush. Makhija held {3-Spades} {3-Hearts} for a flopped set and needed the board to pair to take back the lead. He binked when it came {2-Hearts} and Makhija sent 23,700 across the table, leaving him with 26,700.
