Arce's Flopped Nuts Find Little Value

Norihito Suzuki is the big stack of the Day 1a field, but even he can't win every pot. He opened preflop for 1,500 and was called by Neil Arce. Suzuki check-called a bet of 1,500 on the {J-Clubs} {10-Spades} {9-Spades} flop, then shut everything down the rest of the way. He checked the {K-Spades} turn and got a free card when Arce checked, then check-folded to a bet of 3,000 on the {A-Clubs} river.

Arce flipped his cards with some disappointment after he collected the pot, showing {K-Hearts} {Q-Spades} for the flopped straight.
