Xerri Flops Top Two

Jan_Kores • Level 2: 100-200, 0 ante

Martin Jacobson started the hand with a raise to 500 from the hijack, and he received calls from all players behind him.

The five-way contest went to the {a-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{6-Hearts} flop where the player on the button fired 1,500. Small blind Alan Xerri check-raised to 5,875, forcing folds from Igor Yarshevskyy, Jacobson, and Camil Debsia. The button stuck around, calling.

Both remaining players slowed down when the {7-Hearts} landed on the turn, completing a flush draw. Neither of the players was willing to risk more chips and they checked the {4-Clubs} river as well.

Xerri turned up {a-Clubs}{j-Spades} for a flopped top two pair and his hand was strong enough as the other player revealed an inferior two-pair hand with {a-}{6-}.
