Big Hand Hurts Higgs

• Nível 3: 100-200, 25 ante

Sam Higgs was off to a great start after late registering but a recent clash with his tablemate sent him hurtling back down to just over starting stack.

Players went five ways to the {9-Clubs}{4-Spades}{3-Spades} flop and after two checks, a player made it 500 to go. Higgs was next to act and he bumped it up to 1,400. Following him was Ben Richardson who flat called and after two folds it was back to the initial bettor.

He wanted to play for more and put in another raise to 4,200. After seeing how much his opponent was playing Higgs put in the fourth bet for a total of 11,400. Despite the action Richardson still gave it some thought but ultimately decided to let it go. The other player, however, pushed all in for 16,825 and Higgs called it off.

Higgs: {q-Spades}{9-Spades}
Opponent: {4-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}

“I had nine-four” revealed Richardson as the cards went on their backs.

It was the top pair and flush draw of Higgs against middle set and while he was live Higgs couldn’t find a spade on the {k-Hearts} turn or {a-Clubs} river.
