Jonathan Borenstein

Jonathan Borenstein moved all in from early position and Mike Wang called from the cutoff.

Wang showed KsKd and was up against Borenstein’s Ac9c.

“No good,” said Borenstein as he pointed to his hole cards that were face-up on the felt.

“I’ve seen how you been running these spots,” said Wang.

The flop was 5s3s2c, giving Borenstein more equity on the turn with a straight draw.

“You’re going to be drawing dead on the turn,” said Borenstein.

Borenstein’s prediction was correct and the 4c came off on the turn, giving Borenstein a wheel along with an unnecessary nut flush draw. Wang was drawing dead to the 8d river and Borenstein doubled up.

Jonathan Borenstein – 247,000
Mike Wang – 230,000
