Owais Ahmed (Day 2)


From middle position, Kristopher Tong raised. George Fotiadis made the call from the small blind, and Owais Ahmed called from the big blind. On the {10-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{3-Hearts} flop, Fotiadis fired a bet and Ahmed raised. Tong reraised, and Fotiadis folded. Ahmed called.

The turn was the {6-Hearts}, and Ahmed bet out. Tong put out 30,000, which was ruled a raise because he put half of a second bet in, but he really only wanted to call. Ahmed called. Then, the two players checked the {9-Diamonds} river card.

Ahmed showed the {K-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{2-Hearts} for a flush, king high. Tong showed just the {A-Hearts}, then mucked his hand, and Ahmed won the pot. He's now on 600,000 in chips.
