Roger Sippl Cracks Ankush Mandavia's Aces

Feb 28, 2016

On the turn with the board reading Club JClub 5Heart 2Diamond 3, Ankush Mandavia bets 5,000 from under-the-gun and Roger Sippl raises to 20,000 from the cutoff. Mandavia calls and the Club A comes on the river.

Mandavia checks and Sippl checks back. He announces he has a straight as he tables Heart 6Heart 4. Mandavia sits up in his chair and stares at the board for a few moments before showing Diamond ASpade A, giving him a set of aces.

“I thought you were on a flush draw,” said Sippl. “If it was the other ace, I probably would have doubled up. I almost went for it anyway.”
