Poker hands from Episode 24 -Round 2: Cada vs. Moon
Two pros go head-to-head…again.
Up until now, the episode had been going Cada’s way, with Darvin not getting too involved in the action. Darvin is the first to get in on the action with 5 ♦ 3 ♦ and raising the price of admission to $200. Cada then joins the hand with Q ♣ Q ♥ and raises to $700. Darvin calls the $200 and Steve Dannenmann chimes in, “Classic duel.”
The flop is K ♦ J ♥ J ♦ which gives Cada the odds to win, but the two diamonds on the flop gives Darvin hope for a flush. Both men check through and the turn is a 2 ♦, which does give Darvin the flush. Before the action can get to Darvin, Cada checks his cards and checks. Darvin bets $800 and Cada calls. Cada still has out cards as it goes to the river. The river is a 2 ♣ which seals the hand for Darvin. Cada checks and Darvin flips over his cards and says, “Flush,” and wins $1,525 .
Cada realizes his queens can’t beat Darvin’s flush.
Dan O’Brien commends Darvin on his hand, “getting a frisky down there with a 3 ♦ 5 ♦.” Then jokingly adds, “I wouldn’t back down to Joe Cada either.”
