Unlikely Triple Up For Soika

[user20283] • Level 21: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante

Loc Tu just raised to 31,000 from middle position and Ihar Soika moved all in from his direct left. Soika's shove was for 185,000 and from his direct left Koichi Nozaki made the call.

The action folded back to Tu, and he tanked for a bit before moving all in for 215,000. Nozaki called, and the showdown went as follows.

Tu: {Q-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}
Soika: {J-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}
Nozaki: {A-Hearts}{K-Spades}

The flop brought out {K-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{Q-Clubs} and Tu celebrated after hitting a set.

"Don't celebrate too quickly," a player said, and the turn was the {5-Diamonds}.

On the river the {A-Spades} hit, and Soika smirked as he had hit a straight to triple up. Tu was left with very little, while Nozaki still has a comfortable stack.

Koichi Nozaki JP 780,000 -155,000
Ihar Soika by 570,000 379,000
Loc Tu CA 100,000 -154,000
