Ziyard Hits Back in a Big Way

Three handed action!

Zimnan Ziyard raised to 160,000 from the small blind and John Taramas made the call after five minutes of thinking. The flop was the {K-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{3-Spades} and Ziyard continued with a 175,000 bet which Taramas called after another few minutes of contemplation to see the {9-Spades}.

Ziyard now quickly checked and instantly Taramas shoved all in. Ziyard began to blink, "You haven't got king-nine have you? I guess I have to call..."

Ziyard flipped {A-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}, ahead of Taramas' {10-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} - the latter needed a nine or diamond to survive. A slight pause and the river was the {Q-Clubs}, a huge double up for the Brit and Taramas has been left crippled.
