Wally Maddah

Michael Tureniec raised to 40,000 from early position and action folded around to Wally Maddah in the big blind.

“I’m afraid if I look, I’m going to fold,” said Maddah referencing his short stack and 40,000 committed in the big blind with the ante.

Eventually, Maddah moves all in for about 75,000 and Tureniec quickly calls.

Tureniec showed Kc9c and Maddah sweated his cards one at a time. First, he turned over the Ks.

“That’s a good one for him, I think,” said Zachary Donovan, inferring that it’s likely Maddah’s second card is lower than a nine.

Maddah turned over the 8h as his second card and was dominated by Tureniec’s bigger king.

The board ran out 7s6s6d9h4h and Tureniec won the pot with nines and sixes. Maddah hit the rail in seventh-place, earning $15,370.
