Event #52: $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship

Great Start For Yakov

Happy_Freaked • Level 11: 1,200-2,400, 0 ante

Yakov Hirsch, who had some great prop betting action with Antonio Esfandiari last night, started the day with very little chips but he just managed to take a big pot down.

The action started with Greg Debora who raised from middle position. The Canadian pro was three-bet by Yakov in the hijack and Mike Sowers four-bet from the big blind. Both Debora and Yakov called after which the flop brought out {7-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}.

Sowers bet, Debora called, Yakov raised and both Sowers and Debora made the call. On the turn the {4-Clubs} hit and this time both Sowers and Debora checked to Yakov who bet. Sowers gave up and Debora made the call. The river was the {5-Clubs} and Yakov did not slow down one bit. He bet again and that got Debora to fold his hand as well.

A few minutes later we saw a {K-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{5-Clubs} board on the same table when Debora bet and Sowers called. The river was the {K-Clubs} and Sowers called another bet. Debora showed {A-Spades}{A-Hearts} and he recouped a little of the chips he lost to Yakov from Sowers.
