Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Friedman Takes Huge Hit Right Out the Gate

With 800 in the pot preflop, Prahlad Friedman and his opponent in the cutoff, Frank Jordan, saw a flop of {K-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}. Friedman bet 400, Jordan called, and the {6-Diamonds} appeared on the turn. Friedman immediately led out for 1,500, but was quickly raised to 4,000 by Jordan. Friedman opted for a three-bet to 12,500, Jordan four-bet all in for 28,550, and Friedman made the call.

Friedman: {6-Clubs}{6-Spades}
Jordan: {7-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}

Friedman had turned a set, but little did he know that it also gave Jordan the nut straight. Jordan was the player all in and at risk, meaning he needed to avoid the board pairing on the river to stay alive. Lucky for him, and unlucky for Friedman, the {J-Diamonds} blanked.

Friedman was left with just 3,150 after the hand; meanwhile, Jordan got an early boost to 58,500.
