Event #4: $500 The Reunion No-Limit Hold'em

Alirachedi Turns Trips to Eliminate Two

BrandonBloom • Nível 5: 400-800, 800 ante

A player in middle position raised and Sami Alirachedi called in the lojack. The cutoff made it 8,000 and both players called.

The flop was {8-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{10-Spades}, and after two checks, the cutoff jammed for around 25,000. The middle position player moved all his chips in for about that same amount, and Alirachedi covered both players and called.

Cutoff: {q-Hearts}{q-Spades}
Middle Position: {7-Clubs}{5-Clubs}
Sami Alirachedi: {j-Clubs}{10-Clubs}

The cutoff was ahead with the ladies, but Alirachedi had top pair and a flush draw, and the middle position player had a straight flush draw.

The {10-Spades} turn gave Alirachedi trips and the lead, and the {5-Hearts} river gave him the pot and eliminated two players.
