Too Bad for Two-Pair

We caught another example of why two-pair can be a love-hate relationship for every poker player.

John Ang raised to 400 and received one customer. The board came out 9 A 3 and Ang made a strong continuation bet of 2000. His opponent called and Ang fired another 5000 into the middle on the 5 turn. The all in from his opponent was quickly called by Ang who showed pocket threes for three-of-a-kind.

Too bad for the A 9 of the now crippled opponent. Their only consolation perhaps being that not even Phil Ivey could have got away cheaply from that one.
