How to Make an Assouline of Yourself

[user68268]
David Assouline

David Assouline raised to 200,000 from the cutoff seat. Bill Melvin called from the small blind and the flop came down a monotone {K-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{3-Clubs}. Melvin led for 300,000 and Assouline made the call.

The turn added the {6-Diamonds} and Melvin shoved in. Assouline made the call and was covered. He held the {8-Clubs}{4-Clubs} for a flopped flush and Melvin held the {K-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} for top pair.

The river completed the board with the {5-Spades} and Assouline doubled up. The pot was massive and put Assouline up over six million. Melvin was left with just 560,000.
