Bad Beat for Franco

gaellej • Level 14: 3,000-5,000, 5,000 ante

Sonny Franco started the action with a raise to 11,000 and faced a three-bet to 34,000 from the cutoff. It came back to Franco who took a minute and announced all in for 142,000. It was quickly called by his opponent with a slightly higher stack.

Franco tabled {k-Diamonds}{k-Spades} and was in good shape for a double up, his opponent holding {a-Spades}{q-Hearts}. However the board fell {5-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}, improving he cutoff's hand into two pairs and busting Franco from the tournament.
