AU$5,000 Challenge

Amiri Doubles Through Obst

RazorSharpPro • Level 19: 10,000-20,000, 20,000 ante

It was Honglin Jiang the instigator, opening the action for 42,000 from the cutoff. James Obst eyed up Jiang's stack and took a little time before announcing 'all-in' and shoved for 542,000.

Action folded around to Ehsan Amiri in the big blind who, from the look on his face, had a tough decision to make and he hit the think tank. Eventually, Amiri decided to roll the dice and moved all-in for 218,000 in total. Jiang quickly got out of the way and both Obst and Amiri revealed their hole cards.

Ehsan Amiri: {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}
James Obst: {k-Clubs}{q-Clubs}

Amiri was the player at risk but had the dominating hand. There was a bit of a sweat for both players on the {4-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} runout, with Amiri the man to ultimately make his flush.
