MacPhee Foils Vedes

Shamus • Level 4: 150-300, 25 ante
Tommy Vedes - wheeled out

Five players -- including both Kevin MacPhee (SB) and Tommy Vedes (BB) -- saw a flop come {6-Hearts}{10-Spades}{K-Spades}. It checked to the player in the cutoff who bet 2,300, MacPhee called, then Vedes made it 6,100 to go. The cutoff folded, but MacPhee called the raise.

The turn brought the {7-Hearts}. MacPhee checked, and Vedes bet 9,300. MacPhee responded by pushing all in with his remaining 40,000-plus, and Vedes -- covered by MacPhee -- made the call.

Vedes had {K-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} for two pair, while MacPhee had {Q-Hearts}{J-Hearts} for both a flush draw and an open-ender. The river brought the {A-Clubs}, giving MacPhee a Broadway straight and sending Vedes -- and his big comfy chair -- to the rail.

MacPhee catapults up around the 100,000-chip mark on that one.
