Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Sargsian Builds Bigger House Right Next to Cody's

Shamus • Level 15: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

Interesting hand involving Sargis Sargsian and a short-stacked Jake Cody just now.

The board showed {6-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{8-Spades} and about 40,000 sat in the middle when Sargsian, playing from the big blind, bet 25,000 and Cody called. The river then brought the {9-Diamonds}. Sargsian asked what Cody had left -- about 58,000 -- then bet 20,000.

Cody thought for about a minute, a small grin on his face as he contemplated how his hand rated in comparison to what Sargsian might have. Finally Cody called the river bet. Sargsian showed {9-Clubs}{8-Spades} for eights full of nines, while Cody exhaled as he showed his {7-Hearts}{7-Clubs} for a lesser full house.

Cody preserves 38,000 as we head to the first break of the day. Meanwhile, Sargsian has about 260,000.
