Straight on the Flop

Mike Takayama

On a flop of {9-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{8-Hearts}, Mike Takayama bet out 4,000 and the only other player in the hand responded by going all-in. Mike made the instant call and the card were tabled:

Mike: {j-Clubs}{10-Clubs}
Opponent: {a-Spades}{q-Hearts}

Mike got a scare as the turn brought the {2-Hearts} to give his opponent a chance at a flush but the river blanked with the {4-Spades} to send the other player to the rail.

Mike is now at about 39,000.
