Patz KOs St-Pierre

Shamus
Georges St-Pierre

When Stephan Patz first took his seat at Table 414 earlier today, he probably didn't consider the possibility that before the afternoon was over he'd be knocking out "GSP" — i.e., Georges St-Pierre. But that's what has happened, with Patz using a turned set rather than a cross, jab, or round kick to take down the UFC Welterweight champ.

We caught up with the action on the flop, with the board showing {9-Hearts}{10-Spades}{4-Hearts} and Patz firing 1,700 into the middle. St-Pierre had been down to about 5,000 just prior to the hand, and so when he called the bet the fighter had just 2,125 chips behind.

The turn brought the {J-Clubs} and a bet of 3,000 from Patz, and St-Pierre called with what he had left. Patz had {J-Diamonds}{J-Spades} — he'd turned a set of jacks. But St-Pierre was still swinging with {J-Hearts}{8-Hearts} for both flush and straight draws.

But the river was the {8-Diamonds}, and down goes St-Pierre. GSP shared a congratulatory hug with Patz before departing.
