Boyd Finds Broadway

Brian Meinders raised from the button, and Dutch Boyd called for a flop.

It came out {Q-Spades} {K-Hearts} {J-Diamonds}, and Boyd check-called a bet. He did the same on the {4-Diamonds} turn, and the {A-Spades} landed on fifth street. Boyd checked one last time, and Meinders made a bet. Boyd then snuck in a check raise, and Meinders could barely believe it. He knew what Boyd had, but he shrugged and said, "Well, I flopped a set," as he dumped the extra bet into the pot.

Boyd tabled {10-Hearts} {4-Spades} for the Broadway straight, and Meinders flashed his pocket queens as he sent them spinning into the muck.

They Flip Again


It was a capped pot heads-up according to the TD, even though there is no cap in heads-up play. The flop came {2-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} and Meinders bet, Boyd raised, and Meinders called. When the {5-Clubs} hit the turn, Meinders check-called a bet from Boyd. The {k-Spades} on the river drew a check from both.

Boyd flipped over {j-Diamonds}{j-Spades}, and Meinders mucked his hand.

Meinders Asserting Himself a Bit

Brian Meinders raised, Dutch Boyd reraised, and they each put in three bets to see a jackpot flop come {7-Clubs} {7-Hearts} {7-Spades}. Meinders called a bet there, and another one on the {K-Diamonds} turn, and Boyd checked when the {2-Diamonds} hit the river. Meinders bet, and Boyd called.

Meinders turned up {K-Spades} {8-Spades} for the full house, and it was plenty good to take down the pot.

King Is Good!


There were four bets put in preflop, and the two players saw a {k-Spades}{8-Spades}{6-Diamonds} flop. Meinders check-called a bet from Boyd, and then check-raised the {j-Hearts} on the turn. Boyd tanked for several minutes before finally making the call. The river was the {9-Clubs}, and Meinders checked to Boyd, who decided to slide out a bet. Meinders made the call, and then mucked when Boyd showed him the {k-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}.
