In a three-way raised pot, Ido Ashkenazi was in the small blind, John Pappas in late position and an unknown player in the cutoff. The flop fell As7c5d. Ashkenazi lead for 750 and the other two players quickly called.

Action slowed when Ashkenazi and Pappas checked the 3d turn. The cutoff bet 900 and Ashkenazi and Pappas called.

A trio of checks on the Td river saw Pappas quickly flip over Ad8h. Ashkenazi mucked as did the cutoff. Pappas raked the pot.

Pappas is a regular at Seminole Hard Rock Tampa while Ashkenazi is fresh off a win in the Everglades Poker Open $350 at the Hollywood property.

John Pappas – 27,000
Ido Ashkenazi – 11,500
