A preflop raising war between table chip leader Juliane Aram Papazian and Dmitrijs Golovanovs extended slightly into the first break of the day. A third player opened preflop to 1,600, but ducked out sharpish when Golovanovs three-bet to 7,000 (from a total stack of 18,600) and was set all in by Papazian. Golovanovs called and saw the bad news, which, if you’ve read the title, soon became good news:
Though the third player let slip that it was ace-queen that had been raise-folded pre, a flop of instantly delivered a set for the all-in player, which improved to a flush over the turn and river.
Papazian still has plenty of chips to play with (70,300) while Golovanovs has a slightly above average 40,000.
