Siddiqui Settles In

[user127999] • Level 14: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante
Shaan Siddiqui

Shaan Siddiqui won a satellite into the event, and the Canadian is playing without fear on the way to a 185,000-chip stack now.

He called a Yang Wang raise on the button with the {k-Diamonds}{q-Spades} and Simon Appleby came along in the small blind. According to Siddiqui, they all checked the {9-}{j-}{4-} flop, and when the {8-Clubs} turn made it two clubs on the board, he and Appleby both flatted another Wang bet.

Finally, it checked to Siddiqui on the {9-Clubs} river and he bet half his stack, showing the bluff when his opponents both folded.

A few hands later, he called Alexander Timokhin's {a-}{2-} shove with another king-queen, the {k-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}. Siddiqui got there on an {8-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{3-Clubs}{k-Spades}{k-Hearts} board to send the Russian to the rail.
