Yockey Takes From Long; Cannot Bust Sokoloff

zedmaster84 • Level 23: 30,000-60,000, 0 ante

Limit Hold'em

Philip Long raised on the button and Bryce Yockey three-bet out of the small blind for Long to call. On a flop of {9-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{2-Spades}, Yockey bet and received a call from Long. The {8-Spades} turn went check, check, and Yockey bet again the {3-Clubs} river. Long mulled it over for a while and called but couldn't beat the {q-Clubs}{8-Clubs} of Yockey.

Soon after that, Yockey raised in the cutoff and Paul Sokoloff moved all-in for 155,000 in the small blind. John Racener called in the big blind, as did Yockey. Both active players checked down the {10-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} board and Sokoloff tabled the {a-Clubs}{2-Spades}, Racener showed his {a-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} and Yockey mucked.

In table chat moments later, Yockey mentioned he had "queen jack with the queen of hearts".
