Event #61: COLOSSUS - $400 No-Limit Hold'em

Valencia Hits the River

poolshir • Level 39: 500,000-1,000,000, 1,000,000 ante

Francisco Valencia raised to 2,000,000 from the late position and was called by Andrew Barber in the hijack, Maksim Kalman on the button, and Oswin Ziegelbecker in the big blind.

They all checked through the {7-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{9-Hearts} flop to the {6-Diamonds} on the turn. Ziegelbecker and Valencia both checked again. Barber led out for 4,000,000 and Valencia was the only one to make the call.

The river completed the board with the {q-Spades} for them both to check again. Valencia tabled {k-Clubs}{q-Clubs} for the rivered two pair which shocked Barber as he held his head.

"What are you doing?!" Barber exclaimed.

"Nothing..." Valencia just shrugged.
