$1,650 No Limit Hold’em WPT Championship

Level 12: 800/1,600/200


Action folded to Jean Gaspard (pictured left) in the hijack who raised to 3,200. Justin Zaki (pictured right) three-bet to 8,000 from cutoff and action folded back to Gaspard, who called.

The flop was As9h8c and both players quickly checked. The turn is the 3s and Gaspard checked again. Zaki tossed in a silver, 5,000 denomination chip, and Gaspard cutout 20,000 chips a few times in his stack before electing to just call the 5,000.

The river is the 5s and Gaspard leads out for 13,000. Zaki quickly calls and asks if Gaspard make a flush. Gaspard doesn’t say anything and just shows him 6h5c, good for a pair of fives. Zaki tables AhTd and scoops the pot.

Zaki is sitting with 64,500 and Gaspard has 130,000 in tournament chips.
