Wang Loses Monster Pot Right Before the Break

• Tase 3: 150-300, 0 ante

A monster hand developed right before the break that resulted in a monster 73,000 pot. With around 1,000 in the pot on a flop of {Q-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{K-Hearts}, Dan Heimiller checked from the small blind and William Wellborne did the same from the big. Jacky Wong then bet 575 from middle position, Heimiller check-raised to 1,400, and Wellborne flatted.

Wang responded by three-betting to 6,575, Heimiller got out of the way, and once again Wellborne just called. When the {4-Spades} appeared on the river, Wellborne checked and watch Wang, who had the bigger stack, move all in. Wellborne thought long and hard before eventually calling off his remaining 30,600.



Wellborne was astonished and thrilled that he was ahead, while Wang was clearly disappointed with his position. With his flush draw no good, Wang needed to hit either a straight or one of his hole cards to win, but it was not meant to be as the {8-Spades} peeled off on the river.

Wellborne clapped his hands together in celebration as he doubled to more than 70,000, while Wang dropped down to just 11,300.
