Event 35: $2,500 Mixed Hold'em

Wheeler Doubles Through Behbehani

Brent Wheeler

No-Limit Hold'em

Salman Behbehani raised to 6,500 from the hijack seat before Brent Wheeler reraised all in for 56,500 from the cutoff seat. Play folded back to Behbehani and he snapped it off, tabling the {J-Spades}{J-Diamonds}. Wheeler held the {A-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds} and it was off to the races for this one.

The flop came down {A-Spades}{K-Spades}{9-Spades} and Behbehani fell behind as Wheeler picked up top pair in his quest to double up. Behbehani did add a flush draw as he held the only spade.

The turn {3-Clubs} was black, but not the spade Behbehani needed. The river was the {3-Hearts} and Wheeler won the pot to stay alive.
