Straight Over Straight


With approximately 25,000 in the middle on the {K-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{10-Hearts} board, Athanasios Polychronopoulos checked to Basil Yaiche with 17,500 behind. Yaiche took his time and then fired 7,500 with 21,625 back. After a couple minutes of tanking, Polychronopoulos made the call.

Yaiche held the {A-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} for an ace-high straight, having flopped the good. Polychronopoulos showed the {10-Spades}{9-Spades} having flopped the low end of the straight. He lost the pot and was kicked back to 10,000 in chips.
