Nagui Yassa

It was three-ways to the Jc9s4c flop between Nagui Yassa in the small blind, John DePersio in the big, and Rodney Moret-Rojas in middle position.

Yassa and DePersio checked, Moret-Rojas bet 80,000 and Yassa moved all in for 744,000. DePersio called and Moret-Rojas folded.

DePersio: Tc9c
Yassa: KhJs

Yassa was ahead with top pair but needed to dodge clubs and along with the remaining tens and nines in the deck. The 4h turn made no difference but DePersio filled his flush on the 8c for another huge knockout.

John DePersio – 1,950,000 (81 bb)
