After a flop of {j-Spades}{8-Spades}{10-Hearts}, Zachary "HustlerGrune" Gruneberg bet 850 from early position and saw Josh Arieh raise to over 2,000 from the button. Gruneberg shoved all in, and Arieh snap-called.

"Good luck, Josh," Gruneberg said, but Arieh wouldn't need much luck, as he had flopped a straight with {q-Spades}{9-Diamonds}. Gruneberg turned over {q-Diamonds}{10-Spades}, meaning his best hope was for a nine to hit and chop the pot. The turn and river were blanks ({4-Spades} and {2-Hearts}) and Arieh now has a massive early stack.
