Sam El Sayed Moves Up to 100k
Level 4: 100-200, 25 ante
Poker is a game of ever changing circumstances but one thing that remains constant is that Sam El Sayed will amass a huge chip stack on the first day of a major tournament. He is our first player to reach 100,000 after winning the following hand.
We join the action on a board 9 6 9 2. There is 15,000 in the pot and Sam El Sayed has put in a 6,000 raise over his opponents initial 4,000 bet. His opponent makes the call and the final card is the Q and as soon as his opponent checks El Sayed moves all-in. His opponent takes some time before folding his hand and the post-examination of the hand begins.
"What did you have?" Asks Sayed's opponent.
"A full house and you?" Replies Sayed.
"I had aces."
(Laughs) "That's the funniest thing I have ever heard. Your aces were good." says Sayed.
"You said you had a full house."
"Never believe a poker player," says El Sayed.
