Raiden Strikes with Top Pair

[user133555]
Raiden Kan

Another player has made an early exit, this time at the hands of Raiden Kan.

After some moderate betting on the flop of {5-Hearts}{7-Spades}{a-Hearts}, the small blind shoved all-in on the turn of {2-Clubs} and Raiden snap-called.

Raiden: {a-Spades}{k-Clubs}
Small Blind: {7-Hearts}{6-Hearts}

Raiden had hit top pair but would have to sweat the river as his opponent had plenty of outs: a seven, a six, or another heart would shift the pot the small blind's way.

Luckily for Raiden, the river blanked with the {9-Spades} to virtually double his stack and send his opponent to the rail.
