Sabat Flips For it All

Eddy Sabat

When the action folded around to Eddy Sabat in middle position, he turned to the dealer, made eye contact, and told her he was all in. She nodded in acknowledgement, and T.D. Troy announced it over the mic. Three seats over, the action paused on Thomas Middleton, and he asked for the count before he too announced an all in. Sabat was at risk, and he was heads up in a coin flip.

Sabat: {A-Diamonds} {K-Hearts}
Middleton: {8-Spades} {8-Hearts}

The dealer smacked three cards on the felt, and when she rolled them over, the {K-Spades} appeared right in the door. The full board ended up running {K-Clubs} {10-Hearts} {K-Spades} {3-Diamonds} {Q-Spades}, and Sabat rushed over to the rail for a round of high fives from his cheerleaders.

That double pulls Sabat out of the basement and back up to 2.015 million, and Middleton drops to 1.16 million after paying his debt.

Set Over Set, No Chip Movement

[user66118] • Ниво 27: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

Matthew Berkey has opened the last three pots to 100,000. In the first, he was in the small blind, and Eddy Sabat folded {10-} {7-} from the big. On the next hand, Berkey was three-bet to 270,000 by Mikhail Lakhitov in the big blind, and Berkey yielded.

He tried again on this third hand, opening to 100,000 from the cutoff. Lakhitov flatted this time, and the two men took a {9-Spades} {J-Hearts} {Q-Clubs} flop. Lakhitov checked, and Berkey continued out with another 150,000. Lakhitov took his time counting out a raise, and he made it 425,000 total. After some time in the tank, Berkey shoved, and Lakhitov snap-called. It was a cooler.

Berkey: {Q-Spades} {Q-Hearts}
Lakhitov: {9-Clubs} {9-Diamonds}

It was set over set, and it was Lakhitov on the bad end of it. The two men were virtually even in chips with about 2.35 million apiece, and it wasn't clear who was covered. As it turned out, it didn't matter. The turn and river came {10-Diamonds} and {8-Clubs}, respectively, and Lakhitov was spared from disaster. The straight on the board means the two men chop it up, and Berkey is none too pleased with that result.
