Metaal Makes a Play with Eight High


From middle position, John Duthie raised to 4,500. Govert Metaal made the call from the button, then action folded to Igor Kurganov in the big blind. Kurganov reraised and made it 15,700 to go. Duthie folded, but Metaal called to take a flop in position.

The dealer placed the {4-Hearts}{3-Spades}{2-Spades} in the middle on the flop, and Kurganov bet 13,600. Metaal put in a raise to 33,000, and Kurganov gave it up. Metaal quickly showed the {8-Hearts}{7-Hearts} for eight high with a smile.
