Serda Catapults Over Altman

MartianNews • Level 28: 40,000-80,000, 80,000 ante
Patrick Serda

Patrick Serda opened to 175,000 from the button and Brian Altman three-bet to 800,000 in the big blind. Serda four-bet shoved, totaling 3,740,000 and Altman snap-called, putting Serda at risk.

Patrick Serda: {k-Clubs}{q-Spades}
Brian Altman: {8-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}

The flop was clean for Altman when the dealer spread {j-Hearts}{5-Spades}{3-Hearts} out and Serda was in need of some paint. A fortuitous {q-Diamonds} peeled off on the turn, pairing up the Canadian who then took the lead with his queens.

The {j-Diamonds} river cemented the pot for Serda, doubling through Altman shortly after dinner break.
