It didn’t take long for another big stack to emerge post-dinner break as Shaun Deeb was sent to the rail by Jake Sung in a pot that puts Sung near the top of the leaderboard. Normally, hand histories don’t come out this early in a Day 1, but a hand of this magnitude needed to be seen by the fans.
Picking up the action on a 7♣5♥2♠ flop, Matt Taylor checked from the big blind over to Deeb, who bet 6,500 from early position into a pot of about 15,000. Sung called from the hijack and Taylor responded with a check-raise to 15,500. Deeb called the raise and Sung followed that up by raising to 40,500 total.
Taylor shook his head a few times and eventually relinquished his hand. Deeb didn’t look thrilled with the spot he was in as he counted his remaining stack, which amounted to about 40,000 even. After some running some internal thought, Deeb dropped the rest of his stack in the middle and Sung followed right behind him with a call.
Deeb showed 7♠6♣ and Sung flipped 2♦2♥ for a set. Needing running cards, Deeb was effectively dead on the 10♥ turn. Sung is now up to about 140,000 and is among the top stacks in the room and it will be interesting to see if more hands develop at this action table.
