Vedes Knocks One Out

We caught up with the action with Tommy Vedes in the hijack. He appeared to have raised and then get 3-bet by his lone opponent from the button. Vedes responded by raising enough to put his opponent all in and his opponent called.

Vedes: {A-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}
Opponent: {K-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}

The flop came with an {A-Diamonds} in the window, but the other two were the {5-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}, which gave Vedes' opponent a pair and some hope.

The turn brought the {Q-Spades}, propelling Vedes' opponent into the lead.

The river? {10-Hearts}, giving Vedes a superior two-pair and knocking his opponent to the rail.

"Well that was about as swingy of a hand as you can get," one of Vedes' table-mates said.

Vedes is up to 120,000.

Tommy Vedes us 120,000 80,000
