Congratulations to Ahmed Taleb from Minnesota who finished 2nd in our DeepStack Championship Event #45 $1,100 NLH DoubleStack $250K GTD winning $40,774.
In the final hand of the night, Taleb moved all in for his remaining 1,500,000, and was called by Andrew Wisdom.
Wisdom: A♠ 5♦
Taleb: 5♥ 5♣
Taleb thought he had won with his pocket pair after the board ran out K♣ 3♦ 3♠ 2♥ 4♦. He didn’t realise that Wisdom made a straight on the river leaving him agonisingly close to taking out the title.
