Humphrey Triples Again, Saechao Left Steaming

dsalituro • Level 27: 40,000-80,000, 80,000 ante
Matthew Humphrey

On the first hand back from break, Kao Chieng Saechao raised to 200,000 from under the gun, Matt Mamiya and Paulo Villena called, and Matthew Humphrey potted to 1,080,000 from the small blind. Saechao and Mamiya called.

The flop came {5-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{j-Clubs} and Humphrey moved in for 435,000. Both Saechao and Mamiya called to see the {j-Diamonds} turn. Saechao checked and Mamiya bet 800,000.

Saechao took his time before folding, then slammed the table when Mamiya showed {q-Clubs}{q-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{8-Spades}. "Your aces are good," Mamiya told Humphrey as he turned over {a-Hearts}{a-Spades}{10-Clubs}{6-Hearts}.

The {10-Diamonds} came on the river and Humphrey tripled up for the second time at the final table. Saechao got up from his seat in frustration, claiming he folded a straight that would've won the pot and eliminated Humphrey.

"How do you bet there? You had nothing," he told Mamiya.
