Event 20: Rivera Short, then Quintuples

$3300 + $200 WPT Borgata Poker Open Championship NLH   

On a flop of K 7 4 with two spades, Bobby Oboodi got all-in against Anthony Rivera.  "You have a flush draw?" Anthony asked.

Nope -- Bobby had KQ offsuit for top pair.  "Uh-oh" said Anthony, as he rolled over KJ offsuit to show he was out-kicked.

The last two came 2 A and changed nothing.  Bobby doubled up to ~1.8 million.  Anthony was left with only 53k.

A couple of hands later, Anthony was all-in for less than the 50k big blind against three opponents who checked the board to the river:  T T 8 K A.  On the river, Douglas Kim bet and the others folded.

Douglas showed A4 for a pair of Aces, but Anthony had KT for trips to take the pot and quintuple up to about 250k.
