Hand #274: Staszko Check-Raises the River

• Level 42: 1,000,000-2,000,000, 300,000 ante

Pius Heinz had the button, and he switched his raise back to 4.2 million. It was no matter to Martin Staszko, and he called to see the {2-Spades} {K-Hearts} {J-Diamonds} flop. Heinz continued out with 5 million, and Staszko called to see the {9-Hearts} on the turn. It went check-check this time, and the {5-Clubs} filled out the board. Staszko checked a third time, and Heinz decided a river bet of 8.5 million was in order. Surprisingly, though, his opponent clicked it back, making the minimum check-raise to 17 million total. Heinz sat back in his chair a bit now, and it became clear that he did not like his spot. After just a minute, he slid his cards back to the dealer with one finger.
