Richard's Hearts Keep Him Near The Top

Richard Mari

After seeing his chips dip a bit, Richard Mari has made up for it and is now back up to about 115,000 after a big hand.

On a flop of {k-Spades}{q-Hearts}{9-Hearts}, Richard bet 1,400 and got a call from the button.

When the turn {3-Clubs} landed, the button put out 2,600 and Richard made the call.

A third heart came as the river was the {a-Hearts}. The button bet 5,000, and Richard again made the call.

Richard: {7-Hearts}{5-Hearts}
Opponent: {10-Spades}{j-Clubs}

The button player had made a straight on the turn but chose not to bet too big and it hurt him in the end as the third heart came to complete Richard's flush.
