Yang Loses One; Seated with Former Athletes Stocz and Rink


After a player raised from middle position to 1,300, Jerry Yang called from the small blind and Jeremy Saunders called from the big blind to see the flop come down {6-Spades}{5-Spades}{4-Hearts}. Everyone checked.

The turn was the {10-Clubs} and everyone checked again. The river was the {7-Clubs} and Yang checked before Saunders bet 2,950. The middle-position player folded and action fell back on Yang. He tanked for a couple of minutes before finally making the call.

Saunders tabled the {9-Spades}{8-Clubs} for the nut straight and Yang mucked his hand.

Also at Yang's table are Eric Stocz and Paulo Rink, both former professional athletes. Stocz played football in the NFL while Rink was a professional soccer player in both Brazil and Germany. This should make for an interesting table to track today.
