Flight 2: Lowe Cripples Zaki

$1,650 No Limit Hold’em WPT Championship

Level 13: 1,000/2,000/300


After an early position limper, Justin Zaki raises to 7,500 and Marc Lowe (pictured) moves all in. Action folds back to Zaki, who quickly calls and it’s off to the races as Zaki tables AsKc and Lowe shows 9c9h.

The flop is Qh2d2h and Lowe’s nines are still in the lead. The 9d on the turn left Zaki drawing dead as Lowe made a full house. The river is the 4s and Lowe takes the pot.

The dealer counts down the chips and confirms that Lowe is all in for 71,600. After Zaki pushes Lowe most of his stack, Lowe doubled up to 148,200 and Zaki is left with just over 3,000.
