Five-Deuce is Good Enough for Simba Jae Kyung Sim

Level 9: 400-800, 100 ante

Three players put in 1,600 each to see a flop of 8diamond3heart2diamond. The small blind checks, and Simba Jae Kyung Sim bets 1,500 from the big blind. The cutoff raises to 3,700, and the small blind folds. Sim calls.

The turn card is the 10diamond, and both players check.

The river card is the Kspade, and they check again. Sim says, "Pair," and when his opponent doesn't move, Sim shows one card -- the 2heart (pair of deuces). His opponent says nothing, and Sim turns over his other card -- the 5spade.

His opponent mucks, and Sim wins the pot with a pair of deuces.

David Lim Reaches 64K

Level 9: 400-800, 100 ante

DSC_4521-1
With the board showing Jdiamond8spade3clubKspade on the turn, the button and the big blind have both bet 5,575 before David Lim (pictured above) moved all in from UTG for about 35,000.

The button folds, and the big blind goes into the tank for several minutes with a shorter stack.

Eventually, somebody calls for a clock, and as the countdown reaches the final five seconds, the big blind folds. David Lim lets out a big sigh as he takes the pot without showing his cards.

David Lim  -  64,000  (106 bb)

After the hand, Lim tells the table that he had ace-king suited.
