Everything Went Wrong for Wong - Two Flopped Straights No Good

Webjoker • Nível 4: 150-300, 50 ante

As we entered the massive tournament room we walked into Wesley Wong who we had seen sitting down not too long ago. He, still with a smile on his face, told us what had happened.

In the first hand, he got involved with {8-}{6-} and flopped well on {10-}{7-}{9-} with two hearts. His opponent checked and Wong bet 1,400. His opponent check-raised to 4,000 and Wong called. The {5-Hearts} hit the turn and his opponent bet 7,000. Wong called again and saw his opponent check on the {3-} river. Wong bet 8,600 and his rival called with {Q-Hearts}{4-Hearts} for the turned flush.

That straight proved no good and neither would his second one.

This time there was a raise and three calls before Wong over called from the button with {J-}{10-} off suit. A player in the blinds called as well and the flop came {7-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{9-Diamonds} giving Wong the straight. A player in middle position bet 1,400 and Wong raised to 4,000. Action folded back to the initial bettor and he called. The {A-Spades} on the turn made for a second flush draw and Wong shoved for 13,000 after his opponent checked. His competitor called with {8-}{8-} and send Wong packing after the {9-} on the river paired the board.
