Jan_Kores • Level 17: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

The action was on fifth street with Barbara Lewis, Tony Ma, and Justin Bonomo fighting for a hefty pot.

Ma had three hearts out, and he bet, earning calls from both Bonomo and Lewis. Bonomo paired his sixes on sixth street, and he led out. Lewis called, and Ma stayed in the contest, too. Seventh street was checked through.

Tony Ma: {X-}{X-} / {3-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{J-Spades} / {X-}
Justin Bonomo: {X-}{X-} / {6-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} / {X-}
Barbara Lewis: {X-}{X-} / {2-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{Q-Spades} / {X-}

Bonomo had just the open sixes, rolling over {A-}{J-}{8-}. Lewis had him beat with two pair, showing {10-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{2-Spades}. Ma double-checked his hole cards and shook his head in a sign of his defeat. Lewis scooped the whole pot to climb over 200,000 in chips.
