Event #50: $2,500 10-Game Mix (Six Handed)

Wong Whittling at Saffari

Shamus • Level 26


There was more significant action in the stud round to report. Picking up a later hand on fourth street, Brandon Wong check-raised a Sebastian Saffari bet. Then Saffari was dealt queens on both fifth and sixth streets, check-calling a bet on fifth then leading with a bet on sixth and getting called.

Wong: ({x-}{x-}) / {8-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}
Saffari: ({x-}{x-}) / {2-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{Q-Spades}

Saffari bet on seventh again and Wong called, and Saffari tabled {A-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} to reveal he had two pair, queens and deuces. Alas for Saffari, Wong had the other two queens among his down cards as he turned over {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}, plus the {4-Hearts} to pair the four on his board. Wong had the better two pair, and had won the pot.

Saffari would get some back on a subsequent stud hand, but would start the next game having fallen down to less than 400,000.
