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

Rubie Leaves Naz For Dead


The largest pot of the day just played out here on the final table of the 2012 Aussie Millions Opening Event. The action started when Brendon Rubie opened the pot to 48,000 from under the gun. Scott Wilson made the call, along with Naz Sibaei and Tam Troung in the blinds.

Flop: {8-Clubs}{5-Spades}{9-Spades}

The action was checked to Rubie and he led for 110,00. Wilson got out of the way and this is when Sibaei made the check raise - 150,000 more to go. Troung got out of the way and Rubie made the call as the {2-Hearts} was dealt on the turn. Sibaei again opted to check and Rubie continued his aggression, sliding out 220,000. Sibaei went for the check-raise again, this time shoving his stack all in. Rubie instantly announced the call.

As soon as Rubie made the call he tabled his {8-Spades}{8-Hearts} and Sibaei sighed and said, "you got me," as he turned over his {k-Hearts}{j-Clubs}.

Sibaei was not wrong, Rubie had him. . The {10-Diamonds} on the river changed nothing and once the stacks were counted out, Sibaei was left with just 60,000.
