Staszko Runs Down Shakerchi

Yardley • Level 5: 150-300, 25 ante

Martin Staszko had just lost a pot with {q-}{q-} to Tom Hall’s {k-}{q-} when Hall out flopped him and got some value on the end when, on the next hand, he called a 750 open from Talal Shakerchi as did one other player.

The flop was {7-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{2-Spades} and Shakerchi threw out a continuation bet of 1,200. Staszko it was who made the call and they saw a turn card {4-Spades}. Shakerchi went for 3,100 this time and again saw Staszko put out the calling chips. A final card {5-Spades} didn’t see Shakerchi slow down and he bet 5,300.

Staszko called for a final time and the flopped two pair {8-Spades}{7-Diamonds} of Shakerchi was good until the river gave the {k-Spades}{8-Spades} for Staszko a flush. There was a little jolt of surprise from Shakerchi, but no more, as Stasko recovered some lost chips.
