Joubert Catches Some Nines

elron66 • Level 11: 800-1,600, 200 ante

Darren Penner opened the betting with a limp from middle position. Both Anthony Joubert and Chris Clisby called from the blinds. Joubert checked the flop of {3-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{10-Spades} and Clisby fired 2,000 into the middle.

That bet cleared Penner out of the way, but Joubert made the call. The {9-Clubs} on the turn drew checks from both players, but when the board paired with {9-Hearts} on the river, Joubert fired 6,000 into the middle. "I had a nine," Joubert said when Clisby folded, showing the table one card, while he mucked the other card face down.
