KaleGozer • Level 35: 10,000-25,000, 25,000 ante
Brett Apter

Brett Apter raised to 55,000 in late position and Adrian Scarpa defended the big blind. Scarpa check-called 45,000 on a {q-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} flop and 80,000 on an {8-Spades} turn.

The river was the {8-Hearts} and Scarpa checked a third time. Apter bet 475,000, leaving himself with a mere 15,000 behind, and Scarpa called after some thought. Apter showed him {j-Spades}{9-Spades} for a straight and Scarpa mucked.
