Adam Owen

Hand 1
Adam Owen raised to 12,500 from the small blind and the player in the big blind called.

The flop was {9-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} and both players checked. The turn was the {a-Spades} and Owen bet 13,000. His opponent called. The river was the {3-Clubs} and Owen bet 25,000 and his opponent snap-called.

Adam turned over {j-Hearts}{2-Spades} for a five-high wheel straight, not exactly a hand that tops the preflop charts, and his opponent let out an exasperated noise as he released his hand into the muck.

Hand 2
Alex Ward opened to 11,000 from early position and Adam Owen three-bet to 27,000 from the cutoff. Ward called and check-called a 25,000 from Owen on the {A-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} flop. Both players elected to check the turn.

On the {4-Clubs} river, Ward bet 37,000 and Owen considered it for a bit. After a minute, he committed the call. Ward showed {10-Hearts}{9-Hearts} for a busted draw, and Owen raked in the pot with a legitimate hand this time: {K-Spades}{K-Clubs}.
