Zhu Exposes Hand; Folds Eventually

[user38873] • Nível 3: 800-1,600, 0 ante

Pot-Limit 2-7 Triple Draw

After the second draw, Yueqi Zhu accidentally exposed his jack-six and the floor was called as there was in fact another draw remaining. "Oh shit," Zhu said and tried to scramble his cards within a second. Nick Schulman was his opponent and both then took one card each.

Schulman bet 8,400 into a pot of more than 10,000 and Zhu then folded, flashing a seven-high straight.
