JC Tran Straightens Blumenthal

[user68268]

Nicholas Blumenthal raised from the cutoff seat to 18,000 and JC Tran called from the big blind to see the flop come down {6-Hearts}{5-Spades}{2-Clubs}. Tran checked and Blumenthal bet 15,000. Tran made the call.

The turn card was the {8-Hearts} and Tran checked again. This time, Blumenthal checked behind to see the river card fall the {3-Spades}.

On the river, Tran fired 36,000 into Blumenthal. After a minute, Blumenthal made the call, but mucked his hand when the {A-Spades}{4-Clubs} was revealed from Tran's hand for a straight.
