Event #42: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Martin Makes a Surprise Straight

[user249920] • Level 22: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

In the last hand before the redraw, Kirby Martin and Norbert Szecsi saw a {4-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{a-Diamonds} flop heads up. Martin fired 60,000, and Szecsi called him. The turn paired the board with the {3-Clubs}, and Szecsi watched his opponent bet 75,000 this time. Again, Szecsi called. Martin fired a final bullet on the {5-Clubs} river, 125,000. Szecsi leaned back in his seat and pondered before announcing a call.

Martin rolled over {2-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} for a rivered straight.

"Nice hand," someone said at the table.

"Yeah it was, because I hit a straight," he replied.
