Ashby Unlucky


Richard Ashby has just been crippled losing a big pot to Ismael Bojang. The latter started off raising under the gun to 8,000 and Ashby called from the cutoff.

The flop came down {5-Spades}{3-Clubs}{J-Hearts} and Bojang bet 4,000 after which Ashby put in a raise. Bojang called and the turn was the {K-Spades}. Bojang check-called after some tanking and the river was the {6-Spades}.

Bojang lead out for 8,000 and as soon as Ashby called he announced, "Nut-nut".

"Jezus Christ," Ashby said as he turned over his {2-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{3-Spades}{6-Diamonds}. Bojang scooped the pot with {A-Spades}{2-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{J-Spades} and is now back up to 70,000 while the Brit is knocked down to just 24,000.
