Bach Robbed of a Chip-Leading Pot, Still Profits

• Level 21: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante
David Bach

Seth Davies opened the pot with a raise to 35,000, and Mazin Khoury three-bet to 75,000. David Bach overcalled in position, and Davies wanted to play for more. He shoved all in for 337,000, only to see Khoury reraise all in over the top. It was about 1.1 million total, and Bach's plan worked to perfection. He snap-called with {A-Diamonds} {A-Hearts} and the covering stack. Davies tabled {Q-Clubs} {Q-Diamonds}, and Khoury's {10-Hearts} {10-Diamonds} was third-best.

The board ran out {2-Diamonds} {7-Clubs} {5-Clubs} {5-Spades} {Q-Hearts}, and the chip-leading pot was stolen away from Bach on the river. Davies makes his life-saving set, drawing a huge exhale as if he'd been holding his breath all day long. He'll take the main pot, tripling up over a million chips! Khoury is eliminated by Bach in the side pot, and it moves the Gunslinger up to about 3.7 million. That number would be more like 4.7 million if not for that four-outer on the river, and Davies is certainly thrilled that one went the way it did.
