Lindberg Flops a Straight to Survive

[user72235] • Level 5: 150-300, 25 ante

Dan Smith opened with a raise to 750 and Jason Mercier made the call. Bjorn Lindberg then went all in for 1,550 and the player in the cutoff seat four-bet to 2,625. Smith folded and Mercier made a five-bet of 4,900. The player in the cutoff folded, and Mercier and Lindberg went heads up to a showdown.

Mercier: {K-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}
Lindberg: {6-Clubs}{4-Hearts}

Lindberg was in a really bad shape and needed a small miracle to survive. And the miracle happened, as the flop came {3-Spades}{5-Spades}{2-Hearts} giving him a straight and instantly putting Lindberg in the lead. The {2-Diamonds} on the turn and {9-Diamonds} on the river made no change and Lindberg survived.
