Pahuja Wins Big From McLellan

Yardley • Level 5: 200-400, 50 ante
Mukul Pahuja

There was an open to 900 and Duncan McLellan raised it to 1,900. Mukul Pahuja was on the button and made it 5,300. The original raiser got out of the way and McLellan stuck in a five-bet to 16,900.

Pahuja stared McLellan down and made the call. The flop was {6-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} and McLellan bet 20,400. More intense staring from Pahuja before he made the call. The turn card was the {3-Diamonds} and now McLellan checked. Pahuja bet 38,000 and stared hard again.

McLellan had a big decision to make as the turn bet was around half of his remaining stack. He mulled it over for several minutes before saying he had the best hand but made the fold.

Yevgeniy Timoshenko to his right asked him if he folded aces but McLellan said he had queens.
