Borgata Winter Poker Open Championship
Mike "The Nose" Castaldo flops the joint holding 10♥ 10♣ , but by the river downshifts the action.
The board is 10♦ 9♣ 9♠, giving Castaldo a full house, but pauses when the Q♣ hits the turn and Thomas Sheets is still in the hand.
"Because he just called my preflop raise, I thought he might have an over pair like pocket queens," says Castaldo.
The river is the 4♣ and Castaldo leads out for 1,800 and Sheets pops it to 5k. Castaldo thinks about re-raising but opts to call.
Sheets tables A♣ K♣ for a second best flush, as Castaldo takes down the 10k. "If I knew he was on a flush draw I would've milked it for more value. "It kind of sucks, but I'm happy."
