Frankenberger Flops the Nuts


We saw Andy Frankenberger sitting with a big stack of chips, and he was kind enough to fill us in how on he acquired many of them. According to the two-time bracelet winner, action folded around to Brian Roberts on the button and he raised to 450. The small blind called, as did Frankenberger in the big, and it was three-way action to the {2-}{3-}{5-} flop.

After two checks, Roberts bet 900, the small blind folded, and Frankenberger check-raised to 2,000. Roberts made the call and then called another 2,000 on the {K-Hearts} turn. When the {5-Hearts} appeared on the river, Frankenberger check-called a bet of 5,300 with {6-}{4-} for a flopped straight, which beat the {4-}{7-} of Roberts.
