The Barely Bigger Boat

Melisa Momay

Over on Table 20, Melisa Momay was able to make a bigger full house - barely - and it helped her add a fair amount of chips to her stack.

With the board showing {j-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{9-Hearts}, the cut-off led out for 1,000 and got two callers, including Melisa.

On the turn {2-Diamonds}, the cutoff bet out for 2,000 and Melisa made the call. The other player thought about it before folding.

When the river came {9-Spades}, the cutoff bet an additional 2,000 and Melisa decided to just flat call.

Cutoff: {10-Diamonds}{10-Spades}
Melisa: {10-Hearts}{j-Hearts}

The cutoff had made a full house using the three nines on the board but Melisa was able to do one better as her jack helped her make the bigger boat.
