Serda Finds a Much-Needed Duck Against Altman

MartianNews • Level 29: 50,000-100,000, 100,000 ante
Patrick Serda

Patrick Serda raised to 775,000 from under the gun and Brian Altman called on the button. The dealer spread out {j-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{6-Clubs} on the flop, Serda continued for 395,000, leaving just 10,000 behind.

Altman called and the {j-Spades} landed on the turn. Both players checked through to showdown with a {2-Clubs} hitting the felt on the river to complete the board.

Altman tabled {5-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} for a counterfeited pair of nickels that turned into jacks and sixes with a five-kicker. Serda slammed down {2-Spades}{2-Diamonds} with a smile as he had the absolute nut-low on the turn, which became a boat on the river to take down the pot for a full double through Altman.
