Lucky Split For Chuck

Chuck Jimenez

Chuck Jimenez is breathing a sigh of relief after escaping a recent hand with a split pot.

On a flop of {3-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{4-Diamonds}, Chuck bet out 70,000 and Ray Martin moved all-in for 195,000 more. Chuck called with his smaller stack and the cards were tabled:

Chuck: {7-Hearts}{7-Spades}
Ray: {6-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}

Chuck had the overpair and a gutshot straight. Unfortunately for him, Ray had already made the straight.

However, the {6-Hearts} came on the turn, giving them both straights and saving Chuck from elimination.

He'll probably be more wary the next time he gets into a situation like that.
