Ylon Spikes a Queen to Send One Home While Jonathan Rivera Makes a Great Fold

[user217945] • Nivå 4: 150-300, 25 ante
Ylon Schwartz

Former November Niner Ylon Schwartz is just now starting himself on the right foot, after starting the day rather quietly.

We caught up to the hand when the action was like so: Jonathan Rivera, who was on the button had a preflop raise of 1,600 out. Across the table another player had moved all in over the top of that for 11,975. Next to go, Ylon Schwartz had moved all in over the top of that for a total of 30,050. Then, Rivera on the button went deep into the tank before eventually flashing his cards to Kyle Julius, who was sitting right beside him, and folding.

Schwartz: {Q-Spades}{Q-Hearts}
All In: {A-Hearts}{A-Spades}

It looked bad for Schwartz who was well behind with his pair of queens and it looked even worse when the flop came down {7-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{J-Spades}, not giving him any extra outs. The turn was the {5-Diamonds} still keeping Schwartz behind, but the river was just the miracle {Q-Clubs} that Schwartz needed, allowing him to pick up the knock out and all the chips.

In the mean time, Jonathan Rivera told the entire table that he had folded kings, which would've ended up being the third best hand. Kyle Julius who was sitting next to him confirmed that he had in fact folded kings and that left the entire table dumbfounded at how he could've made such a great fold.

"It was two red kings," Julius told the table what he had seen.

"That's a great fold man, you had the third best hand," someone else at the table said.

"You folded kings?!" Schwartz said, not believing what he was hearing.

While we didn't actually see the cards, it would still be an amazing fold if what Rivera and Julius said is in fact true.
