Everybody Loves a Chop Pot

Chad_Holloway • Level 25: 15,000-30,000, 4,000 ante

On a flop of {q-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{10-Hearts}, Ivan Soshnikov checked and Martins Seilis bet 110,000. Soshnikov responded with an all-in check-raise to 621,000 and Seilis snap-called.

Soshnikov: {k-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}
Seilis: {k-Spades}{q-Spades}

Both players flopped top pair with an open-ended straight draw, and with no flush possibilities, it meant the pot was destined for a chop. That's just what happened after the {7-Spades} and {A-Spades} were put out on the turn and river respectively.
