Altman and Lui Shove the Flop

MartianNews • Level 27: 30,000-60,000, 60,000 ante
Brian Altman

Brian Altman opened to 125,000 from middle position and Theodore Lui three-bet to 375,000 in the cutoff. Altman called and the dealer fanned out {j-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} on the flop.

Altman tapped to Lui, he bet 300,000 and Altman swiftly moved all in for 2,170,000. Lui snap-called and the two tabled their hands with Altman at risk.

Brian Altman: {9-Hearts}{8-Hearts}
Theodore Lui: {a-Hearts}{j-Clubs}

Lui was ahead with his trips but needed to dodge a pile of outs that Altman could hit to take the pot. A {4-Diamonds} landed on the turn, leaving Altman with one last card to take down the pot.

A hand altering {k-Hearts} peeled off on the river, hitting Altman with a flush as he bested the three jacks of Lui to take down the pot for a complete double.
