On a raised pot in a head's up situation, the flop showed {3-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} when the player in the small blind seat check-called a bet from Bob Bobers worth 20,000.

The turn {j-Spades} went check-check and the river fell a {2-Hearts}. This time the small blind led out for 55,000 and after a minute of thinking, Bobers made the call. The small blind tabled {10-Hearts}{9-Hearts} and the pot was sent to Bobers who held {6-Spades}{6-Diamonds}.

Garcia Loses a Small One

gaellej • Level 16: 4,000-8,000, 8,000 ante

A player opened to 18,000 and it folded to Cord Garcia and Daniel Ghobrial who called in the blinds.

The three players checked throughout a board {k-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{k-Hearts} and the {4-Clubs} hit the river. After a check from Garcia, Ghibrial bet 19,000 and it was called by the initial player and Garcia.

Garcia showed {a-Spades}{j-Diamonds} for two pairs but the pot was sent to the initial player who held {a-Clubs}{q-Clubs} for a better kicker while Ghobrial quickly mucked his hand.
