Varkonyi Cracks Opponent's Set

Robert Varkonyi Clubs The Competition

We caught up to find three players looking down at a {Q-Hearts}{K-Clubs}{2-Clubs} flop. The first two players tapped the table and action was on the 2002 World Series of Poker Main Event champion Robert Varkonyi. Varkonyi bet 1,100 only to have the first player check-raise him to 2,600. The third player got out of the way and Varkonyi called.

The turn was the {4-Clubs} and Varkonyi's opponent continued out for 3,500. Varkonyi sat for about thirty seconds before calling. The {8-Spades} completed the board and Varkonyi was now facing a 5,000 chip bet.

Varkonyi counted his chips down and then stared at the board for a bit before raising to 15,000. This bet left him with only about 5,000 behind. Varkonyi's opponent tossed out a call.

"Another nut flush!" someone else at the table said before Varkonyi turned over his cards.

Indeed, Varkonyi exposed {A-Clubs}{Q-Clubs} for the nut flush. Varkonyi's opponent shook his head and showed {2-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} for a flopped set of deuces.

"Two in a row," chimed in another player. "You are a very lucky man". Varkonyi smiled as he stacked his new found chips.
