Josephy Rules the Koop

• Nível 2: 75-150, 0 ante
Cliff Josephy

A big hand developed between Daniel Koop and the infamous Cliff Josephy, who finished third in the 2016 WSOP Main Event for over $3.4 million before only cashing once since....when he won a $5,200 event at the Five Diamond Classic for $163,250!

The pot began to build preflop when Koop made it 400 from the dealer button, only for Josephy to raise to 1,500 in the small blind. That raise was called by Koop and the pair went heads up to a flop of {8-Spades}{A-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}. Josephy continued for 1,200 and got a quick call. The turn of {Q-Spades} got a check from each player, but on the river of {8-Diamonds}, Josephy led out for 3,300. Koop couldn't call, and Josephy's win brings him back up to almost starting stack on 29,500.

Despite losing the pot, Koop remains around the top of the pecking order at 46,775.
