One For Each

Yu opened 1010, Airball called with AJ, Robl called with KQ, Tang called with 85, and Suvarna closed the pre-flop action with [invalid notations]. The pot is $32,000.

The flop comes J78, giving Tang the most equity with a second pair plus flush draw; Airball also hit the top pair with a top kicker. It’s checked to Airball, who bets $20,000, Tang raises to $75,000, and Airball calls. The pot is $182,000.

The turn was 4, and it’s a good turn for Airball, who takes the lead in the hand. Tang gets some additional outs, as six gives him a straight. Tang went all-in for $247,000, and the speech play comes in. When Airball asks Tang what he is doing, Tang says he is tilted; Airball says he has no idea what he wants to do but calls and is favored to win with 61 percent of equity.

They decide to run it twice; the first river was 7, and the second river was 9, so Airball and Tang split the $676,000 pot.

Airball Makes an Amazing Read and Denies the Biggest Pot in History of HSP

Tang opens A7 to $5,000, Yu calls with Q9, Airball calls with 66, and Adams calls with JJ. The pot is $22,000.

The flop comes 8106, everybody checks, and Yu bets $10,000 with his gutshot plus queen high flush draw; Airball calls with a set of sixes, Adams calls with the overpair, and Tang calls with a gutshot. The pot is $62,000.

The turn comes 2, which doesn’t change anything, and Airball leads for $50,000 with the best hand; Adams and Tang both fold and Yu calls. The pot is $162,000.

The river is J giving Yu the nuts, but Airball leads again for $200,000 and gets shoved on for $682,000 effective.

After thinking for ten minutes, Robl calls the clock on Airball and has one minute to decide.

Ultimately, Airball makes the right decision and folds, but Yu wins $297,000.

Tang Splits Again

Yu opens to $5,000 with A4, Adams 3-bets to $20,000 with AK, Tang cold 4-bets to $80,000 with KK, Yu folds, and Adams goes all-in for $237,000, Tang snap-calls. They decide to run it twice.

The first board was 9A2910, and the second was 32710J; Adams and Tang split the pot of $483,000.

This was the final episode of High Stakes Poker Season 12.
