Hands #210-213: Ensan Gets Value From Second Pair

Level 41 : 1,200,000/2,400,000, 2,400,000 ante

Hand #210: Dario Sammartino raised to 6,000,000 and Hossein Ensan made the call to see the {5-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{2-Clubs} flop. Ensan checked after brief consideration and Sammartino checked back to see the {4-Diamonds} turn for free. Ensan bet 4,500,000 and picked up a call, the {a-Clubs} came on the river.

Ensan checked and Sammartino checked back, thanks to the straight on the board they chopped it with {q-Spades}{j-Diamonds} for Ensan and {10-Diamonds}{4-Spades} for Sammartino.

Hand #211: Ensan opened to 5,500,000 and Sammartino came along to the {a-Diamonds}{q-Spades}{2-Diamonds} flop. Sammartino checked and folded when facing a bet of 5,000,000 by Ensan.

Hand #212: Sammartino raised to 6,000,000 from the button and Ensan made the call, the flop brought {k-Diamonds}{k-Spades}{2-Spades}. Ensan's check was followed by a bet of 4,500,000 by Sammartino and Ensan quickly got out of the way.

Hand #213: Dario chants from the Italian rail emerged before the start of the hand and "Hossein, Hossein!" came back from the other side of the Thunderdome. Ensan raised to 5,500,000 and Sammartino called to see a flop of {8-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{4-Spades}. Sammartino checked and called a bet of 3,500,000, which brought the {3-Spades} turn.

Sammartino checked once more and Ensan now made it 8,000,000 to go, Sammartino called. On the {q-Diamonds} river, a third check by Sammartino followed and Ensan fired a third barrel for 16,000,000. While Sammartino was deep into the think tank, the German rail started announcing Ensan's first name letter by letter, and Sammartino eventually called.

Ensan tabled {j-Clubs}{8-Hearts} for a pair of eights and that won the pot to close the gap to all but 11 big blinds.
