Brent Roberts, Big Stax 1500 Day 2

Max Young opened from middle position at the seven handed table to 55k. Action folded to Brent Roberts in the big blind who called, starting the hand with ~9 big blinds.

Flop: Q♦7♥4♥ Pot: 140k


Turn: J♣


River: 10♦

The action was delayed until the end. Roberts led for 65k and was put all-in by Young for 175k total. Roberts made the call.

Roberts Q♣10♥ vs Young Q♠Q♥ Pot: 490k

Young had flopped top-set and how he played the hand likely didn’t matter. In the end, Roberts made two-pair and had no opportunity to get away from the hand. Young continues to run over the short-stacks on his table having eliminated the last three that he put at risk.
