Event 16: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em - Six-Handed

Yang's Queens Trumped By Radoja's Kings

We arrived just as World Series of Poker bracelet-winner Mark Radoja was scooping a huge pot with Jerry Yang strangely absent. Radoja was nice enough to let us know what had happened.

Radoja opened from under-the-gun and was three-bet by Yang in late position. The blinds folded and Radoja re-popped it. Yang five-bet all in and Radoja called.

Radoja: {K-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}
Yang: {Q-}{Q-}

The relatively sweat-free board came out {J-Hearts}{8-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{3-Spades} and Radoja scooped the massive pot with a pair of kings.

Radoja, who won Event #24: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout last year, is up to 85,000 as a result Yang's demise.

Mark Radoja ca 85,000
