Winzeler Loses Set Over Set, Back to Back

[user20283]

Today wasn't the day for Hans Winzeler. During the WSOP in Las Vegas he managed to get a second place in the $5,000 Pot Limit Omaha behind Jason Mercier but no such luck in Cannes. We caught the action on the river with {Q-Clubs}{J-Spades}{9-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} showing and Boucher had a 26,400 bet in fron of him. Winzeler was tanking for quite some time so it seemed because when he folded Victor Ramin immediately said, "You had the best hand 100%. I would have snap called!". Winzeler was confident in his fold even though he felt really sick about it. "I turned the nut flush and jacks so I rivered a boat. The only hand he could have was pocket queens," Winzeler said.

The very next hand, as we were paying attention to another table, Winzeler and Boucher went at it again. On a board showing {10-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} Boucher bet out 3,600. Winzeler decided to raise to 8,500 getting shoved on almost instantly by his opponent. Winzeler felt really bad once more but called all-in for his remaining 25,000 chips.

Winzeler sighed, "Nice, again". The river was the {4-Hearts} and Winzeler made his exit. Before he went to collect his money Boucher told him that he indeed had queens in the big pot they played giving Winzeler at least a bit of feel good about his read.
