Ashrafee Strikes Back

zedmaster84 • Niveau 45: 350,000-700,000, 90,000 ante

Anson "[email protected]" Tsang dominated the first few hands of the heads-up duel but most of his profit vanished when Mohaiman "Ironman3000" Ashrafee limped in and Tsang checked. On the {a-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} flop, Tsang check-called 900,600 and did so again for 2,502,088 on the{10-Clubs} turn.

The {6-Spades} river went check, check, and Tsang's {a-Spades}{5-Diamonds} for top pair was no good as Ashrafee had {a-Hearts}{q-Spades} for the superior kicker.
