mnuwwarah • Level 11: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

Jerry Wong led the betting three ways against Adam Friedman and Joe Tehan, picking up {a-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} on fourth street and then Broadways on fifth and sixth.

Wong: {x-}{x-}/{a-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}/{x-}
Friedman: {x-}{x-}/{3-Spades}{8-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}/{x-}
Tehan: {x-}{x-}/{6-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{q-Spades}{9-Diamonds}/{x-}

On the river, Wong studied his opponents' boards for about 15 seconds. Finally, he checked. The others quickly checked behind him and he announced aces. Friedman pointed at him and Tehan shook his head, so Wong opened {a-Spades}{9-Hearts}{5-Hearts} and scooped it with one pair.
