Event 16: Straighten Up

$260 + $40 Deep Stack NL

John Ernst

Three players see a flop of 3 6 4 and the SB moves all-in for 12k. John Ernst (Ocean Township, NJ) smooth calls from the BB and the action is on Roland Israelashvilli (Forrest Hill, NY).

Israelshvilli goes in the tank, something he didn't have to do very often at the final table of yesterday's 7 card stud tournament. Israelshvilli eventually folds and shows two pairs 6s & 4s, the exact same hand as the SB.

Good fold for Israelshvilli, bad shove for the SB as Ernest tables 5 7 for the nut straight. The board goes brick, brick and Ernst knocks out one player, while the table congratulates Israelshvilli for getting away from his hand.
