Event #40: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Op de Woerd Sticks Around

Chad_Holloway • Level 13: 800-1,600, 200 ante

Ali Eslami opened for 3,200 from the hijack only to have PokerNews' own Frank Op de Woerd three-bet all in for right around 15,000. Joe Elpayaa then moved all in over the top from the small blind and Eslami folded.

Elpayaa: {a-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}
Op de Woerd: {a-Hearts}{k-Clubs}

"Nice hand, huh?" Op de Woerd commented upon seeing he shared the same cards as Elpayaa. That said, there was still the chance that one of them could four flush, something Marc-Andre Ladocuer learned all to well in last year's Main Event.

Fortunately for Op de Woerd, he wouldn't experience the same brutal beat and ended up chopping with Elpayaa after the board ran out {a-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{4-Spades}{2-Spades}{3-Diamonds}.
