Japan’s Manami Hayamizu opened this pot preflop with a minimum bet and is called by the cutoff player. The flop delivers 4♠ 5♠ 6♥ and Hayamizu leads out for 5000. Her opponent raises it up to 14,000 and Hayamizu tanks before moving all in for another 12,600. The call is made and Hayamizu’s J♣ J♠ are way in front of the cutoff’s 9♠ 9♦. The 2♥ turn and Q♦ river send a pot of around 60,000 to Hayamizu.
With 13,000 left the cutoff player gets busted out the very next hand and makes a quick exit.
