Event #6: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout

Chop It Up

[user169806] • Level 9: 400-800, 100 ante

David Israelite opened to 1,600 and Caroline Niekerk called. She then led for 1,600 on the {4-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} flop and Israelite called.

The turn brought the {5-Clubs} into play and Niekerk wasted little time in moving all-in.

"Oh boy!" said Israelite before adding that only a flush beat him.

After a few moments, probably 30 seconds, Israelite called.

Israelite: {9-Hearts}{6-Spades}
Niekerk: {J-Hearts}{6-Clubs}

Both players had the same straight, although Niekerk held a club and could win the pot with a flush. That didn't happen as the river bricked off and the pot was split.
