Yurasov Takes A Big Bite Out Of Saad

KaleGozer • Nível 21: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante
Dmitry Yurasov

Dmitry Yurasov raised to 35,000 on the button and Elie Saad defended his big blind. The flop came {A-Spades}{6-Spades}{2-Hearts} and Saad check-called a 35,000 bet. On the {J-Hearts} turn, Saad checked again. Yurasov had no intention of slowing down and fired 105,000, which Saad called.

Saad checked a third time on the {9-Spades} river. Yurasov emptied the clip, this time coming up with a hefty bet of 240,000. Saad, one of the few amateurs left in the field, sunk back in his chair and counted out his stack. He called it off after a minute, but Yurasov showed him the bad news with {K-Spades}{5-Spades} for the nut flush.

Saad lost nearly half his stack in the hand and stood up from his chair to ease his emotions.
