Friedlander Wins a Flip to Stick Around

Stephen Shelly raised to 43,000 from the button before Steven Friedlander reraised all in from the small blind for around 460,000. Annette Obrestad called from the big blind and Shelly folded. When the cards were on their backs, Obrestad had the sled.

Obrestad: {J-Diamonds}{J-Spades}
Friedlander: {A-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}

The flop added a-heckuva-lotta more outs for Friedlander when it came {7-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}. Needing a heart, an ace or a queen, Friedlander waited to see his fate on the next card.

The {8-Hearts} peeled off and Friedlander nailed his flush. The river was the {3-Spades} and officially sealed the win for the at-risk Friedlander. He's now up to about one million in chips.
