Huntly Crippled

On the very last hand of the night, Dennis Huntly, in his own words, "got f*cking rivered again." After an opponent opened all-in for 10,000, Huntly also moved all in for 14,400 total. Once all others folded, Huntly was delighted to see that his {A-Diamonds} {10-Clubs} was in the lead against {J-Diamonds} {10-Diamonds}.

"Hold, hold," said Huntly. And his hand held on a flop of {Q-Spades} {7-Hearts} {3-Hearts}. It even held on the {k-Spades} turn. When the river fell {A-Clubs}, Huntly clapped his hands and cheered.

"No, no, my friend," said the player on Huntly's right. "He made a straight. Don't tell me you were rooting for an ace on the river!"

Huntly looked back at the board and visibly deflated. "No," he replied. "I was hoping for a jack."

Huntly ends the night with 4,450 chips.
