Congratulations to Tarek Sleiman from Santiago, Chile who finished 9th in our DeepStack Championship Event #48 $600 PLO $75K GTD winning $2,704.
The action started with Sleiman raising to 35,000 from under the gun and getting called by Karl Held and Alfredo Vega in middle position.
The flop fell 5♦ 8♣ 9♥ and Sleiman moved all in for 51,000. Held raised to 273,000. Vega tanked for several minutes before eventually making the call.
The turn brought the 6♠ and Held announced pot putting Vega all in. Vega instantly called with 165,000 behind.
Held: 9♠ 9♣ 5♠ 3♣
Vega: Q♠ J♣ T♥ 8♠
Sleiman: A♣ A♦ K♣ Q♣
Held had the commanding lead with a set against Sleiman’s overpair and Vega’s straight draw.
No help would come for either player as the K♠ completed the board giving Held the double knockout and the pot.
