Schuurbiers Rivers a Better Two Pair Against Micallef
Level 9: 1,000/1,500 (1,500)
Four players checked with around 30,000 in the pot after the Q♥K♦10♠ landed on the flop. Matthew Micallef took charge after the 8♣ turn with a bet of 11,000. Two players folded before Wouter Schuurbiers called.
The A♥ river completed the board. If either player held any jack, they would have improved to Broadway. Quick spoiler alert: Neither player had a jack.
Micallef checked before Schuurbiers opted to bet 15,000. Micallef thought for a few moments before he called. Schuurbiers turned over A♦Q♠ for two pair. Micallef could have mucked his hand but showed the K♣Q♦ to show Schuurbiers and the rest of the table he was ahead until the untimely ace hit the river.
Wouter Schuurbiers – 115,000
Matthew Micallef – 50,000
