Fernandez Flops a Set to Scoop Massive Pot

• Level 17: 3,000-6,000, 6,000 ante
Sergio Fernandez

Sergio Fernandez opened to 13,000 from under the gun and Ian Matakis three-bet to 40,000 from the hijack. The action folded back to Fernandez who made the call to go heads-up to a flop of {q-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{6-Spades}.

Both players checked the flop and the {2-Diamonds} landed on the turn. Fernandez bet 55,000, more than half of the pot and Matakis called. The river was the {a-Spades} and Fernandez thought for over a minute before announcing all in.

Matakis thought even longer and after a few minutes, flicked in a chip to call. Fernandez revealed {6-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} for a set of sixes while Matakis could only muster {k-Spades}{q-Clubs}, as he was sent to the payout desk.
