$1,000 No-Limit Hold'em Opening Event

Youssef On Top


Sam Youssef is now indisputably sitting behind the largest stack in the room and we managed to catch a big hand which added the majority to his mountain of chips.

We came to the table with a board showing {5-Diamonds}{k-Spades}{2-Clubs}{q-Spades} and a big pot building. By the time all the action on the turn was over, the two players had all their chips in the middle.

Yousseff: {j-Hearts}{10-Hearts}
Opponent: {k-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}

When Youssef noticed that his opponent hit a set on the flop he joked that he was drawing dead. That certainly wasn't the case by the time the river was dealt, with the {a-Clubs} giving Youssef the straight.
