A great hand has just been played at table 61, and Tim West has filled us in on the betting action. Thanks, Tim.
An unknown player raises from the cutoff to 6,000, Kia Mohajeri calls from the button, and Gabriel Abusada James Castillo raises from the small blind to 21,200. Ted Lawson calls from the big blind, and the cutoff folds. Mohajeri raises to 80,000, and Abusada makes it a fifth bet for about 150,000.
Lawson stays in the tank for a while before folding, and shows [QcQs] enough that Will Failla (sitting at the table behind him) can see it. (After the hand, Failla confirmed that Lawson folded with two black queens).
Mohajeri calls, and turns over A-Q. Abused shows K-K, and since Lawson folded with queens, Mohajeri has less chance of winning than he thinks.
But the flop comes [Ac8x4c], and Mohajeri pairs his ace to take a big lead in the hand. The turn card is the [8c], which gives Abusada two pair and a flush draw (he has the [Kc]), and additional outs to survive.
The river card is the [6s], and Kia Mohajeri wins the pot with two pair, aces and eights, while Gabriel Abusada James Castillo is eliminated from the Venezuela tournament.
Kia Mohajeri – 360,000 (150 bb)
Ted Lawson – 232,000 (96 bb)
Gabriel Abusada James Castillo – Eliminated
