Rustom Busts Robert, Takes Chip Lead

Sami Rustom

Sami Rustom bet 80,000 after Vincent Robert checked to him on a flop of {10-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}. Robert came back with a raise to 200,000, which Rustom called after a brief pause. The turn brought a {q-Spades}, and Robert pushed all in for 704,000.

Rustom began tanking.

"It doesn't make sense," he finally said, sliding in a tower of green T25,000 chips.

Rustom: {6-Hearts}{6-Clubs}
Robert: {a-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}

Rustom had correctly deduced that he was ahead, but Robert would take the pot and double up with a diamond or an ace on the end. The river was a {10-Hearts}, and Rustom took all of his foe's chips and the overall chip lead.
