Tieman On A Tear, Eliminates Ahmed


Josh Tieman has just won back-to-back big pots to boost his stack up to over 151,000. On the first hand, Matt Weber started the action by raising to 2,800 on the button. The small blind made the call, and Tieman was in the big blind. He elected to raise to 9,200, and it was back to Weber. He clicked it back to 19,300, and the small blind folded.

It was back to Tieman, and after a few moments of thought, he shipped all in for 52,200. That was too much for Weber, as he released his hand, giving the pot to Tieman.

On the next hand, Owais Ahmed and Tieman saw a flop of {5-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{3-Spades}. Tieman checked to Ahmed, who fired out 4,200. Tieman check raised to 10,800, and it was back to Ahmed. He put in a reraise to 18,000, and Tieman responded by moving all in again, having Ahmed covered. Ahmed called, but he was in for bad news when the cards were tabled.

Tieman: {5-Clubs}{5-Spades}
Ahmed: {k-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}

Tieman's flopped set was miles ahead of Ahmed's overpair, and he would need to catch a miracle to win the hand. The turn came the {8-Clubs}, and the river brought the {4-Diamonds}. Ahmed headed to the rail, while Tieman shot up to 151,000 after the hand.
