Joshua Griffith

Joshua Griffith raised from under the gun, James Obst three-bet from the hijack. Action folded to john Racener in the big blind who called and so did Griffith for his last chips so he was all-in.

The flop came {10-Spades}{6-Hearts}{a-Spades}, Racener checked, Obst bet, Racener raised, Obst three-bet, and Racener called.

The turn brought them the {9-Diamonds}, Racener checked again, Obst bet, Racener raised, and Obst called.

The river completed the board with the {5-Hearts}, Racener bet, Obst raised and Racener reluctantly made the call while shaking his head. Obst tabled {10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}, for the flopped set of tens. Racener held {a-Hearts}{10-Clubs} for the flopped two pair, while Griffith got up from his chair as he had {j-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}.
