Rustom on the Rise

Shamus • Nível 19: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

Following an Adam Sherman open for 23,000 from under the gun, four players called including Sami Rustom (button) and Jonathan Jaffe (big blind).

The flop came {8-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{10-Hearts}, and after the small blind checked, Jaffe fired 40,000 and only Sherman and Rustom called.

The turn then brought the {10-Clubs}. This time Jaffe bet 50,000, and Sherman called once more. Then Rustom made it 150,000 to go, and Jaffe didn't wait too long before calling. Sherman, meanwhile, tanked for about a minute before letting his hand go.

The river was the {A-Diamonds}. This time Jaffe checked, and after about a half-minute Rustom declared he was all in. Jaffe sat in thought for another minute or more, then folded.

Rustom wouldn't give in to post-hand urging from others at the table to show his hand, although as the next hand was dealt he insisted he had a flush. That one pushes Rustom up over 1.7 million now.
