Cunningham Finds Out That Curiosity Killed the Cat

BrandonTemple • Level 28: 40,000-80,000, 80,000 ante

Brent Cunningham raised to 225,000 from the button, and Laura Hoppe called in the big blind.

The {2-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{6-Hearts} flop was checked by Hoppe, and Cunningham bet 275,000. Hoppe called.

The {6-Clubs} peeled off on the turn, and Hoppe checked again. Cunningham checked behind.

Hoppe bet 325,000 on the {4-Spades} river, and Cunningham counted out a call, placing it to the side.

"I think I gotta call just out of curiosity," Cunningham said, then called. Hoppe tabled {q-Diamonds}{j-Hearts} for queens-up, and Cunningham mucked.
