Beth Shak Stacked after Gutshot Gets There

• Level 6: 100-200, 0 ante

We missed the preflop action but caught this hand as Beth Shak and two opponents were all in after a flop of {10-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{6-Spades}.

Showdown:
Shak: {10-Spades}{10-Hearts}
UTG: {Q-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}
Button: {A-Clubs}{J-Clubs}

Shak had hit gin on the flop with her top set of tens and her opponents needed help to catch up. That help arrived on the turn, at least for the player under-the-gun, as the dealer revealed the {Q-Spades} for a better set. Shak was now trailing in the hand and hoped to catch the case ten on the river for a miracle.

River: {K-Hearts}

The miracle had been delivered, but not for Shak, as the player holding the button went runner-runner to make a Broadway straight. Both Shak and the player with a set of queens were dispatched from the tournament, while the player with the straight was left with a mountain of new chips.
