Event #29: $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Phan Cracks Baron's Pocket Rockets

[user153638] • Nivel 19: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante

Rep Porter opened for 14,000 from middle position and the player in the hijack called. Isaac Baron then three-bet to 40,000 from the cutoff and Andy Phan moved all in for 74,000 from the big blind. Porter and the hijack both folded, and Baron snap-called.

Baron: {a-Hearts}{a-Spades}
Phan: {9-Spades}{9-Diamonds}

Baron was well out in front with the granddaddy of all hands, but then the flop came down {9-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{q-Hearts} to give Phan a set. Baron seemed frustrated, but he held the only heart. The {J-Hearts} turn actually gave him the flush, but the lead was only temporary as the {Q-Clubs} paired the board to give Phan a winning full house.
