Ali Eslami limps in from middle position, Kristina Holst completes the small blind, and the player in the big blind checks his option.
The flop comes [KhQs8c] and Holst bets 9,000. The player in the big blind folds, then Eslami raises to around 20,000. Holst moves all-in for additional 118,500. Eslami thinks for a couple of minutes then calls.
Holst turns over [KcKs], prompting tablemate Matt Slasberg to dryly tell Eslmai, "That’s top set."
Eslami does not have top set. Instead, he has [Kd10h] for top pair. He gets no help from the [4c] on the turn nor the [As] on the river, and Holst takes the pot to double up.
"She got me good," Eslami tells the table with a smile.
Kristina Holst – 282,000
Ali Eslami – 360,000
