Subbotin's Set Second-Best in the End

[user66118] • Level 6: 200-400, 50 ante

We can't be sure when the money went in, but it truthfully doesn't matter when it happened. Whenever it was, it was still pretty sick. We only caught up at the end of the hand, walking up to see Attila Polner with {Q-Diamonds} {Q-Hearts} out in front of him and Andrey Subbotin with what had been the dominating {K-Clubs} {K-Diamonds}.

It seems likely that Polner committed his last ~24,000 after the {K-Spades} {Q-Spades} {2-Diamonds} flop, but again, we can't be sure. What we can be sure of is that the turn {Q-Clubs} was an absolute dagger to Subbotin. The one-outer struck, and he could not find his own one-out redemption as the river brought the blank {4-Diamonds}.

Subbotin has been dashed down to about 14,000 with that bad beat, and Polner has doubled his way well back above the chip average.
