Big Hit To Yum


When we came to Claudia Yum's table, she was involved in a hand against Raymon Wu and one other opponent with a flop showing {10-Spades}{2-Clubs}{9-Spades}. Wu was first to act and he checked before the other player flicked out 525. Yum then made it an extra 2,300 to go and Wu got out of the before it was back on Yum's opponent. A few moments thought and Yum's opponent had clicked it back another 2,700.

Yum's opponent only had 5,000 behind and as such, Yum tumbled in enough chips to put him all in. A quick call was made by the player and the two turned their hands over.

Yum: {k-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}
Opponent: {10-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}

Yum would need a king or the board to pair up anything but a ten or eight to win. The {j-Spades} on the turn was no help and the {8-Clubs} changed nothing as Yum took the big hit to her stack, while her opponent is looking healthy.
