Reading Gets Lucky

mnuwwarah • Level 18: 3,000-6,000, 500 ante
John Reading

John Reading was in the big blind and check-raised a bet from the player on the button to about 45,000. Reading's opponent, who had bet 18,000 on the {9-Clubs}{q-Hearts}{q-Clubs} flop, shoved all in for around 150,000. Reading quickly called.

Reading: {j-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}
Opponent: {a-Clubs}{j-Clubs}

Both players were drawing but Reading was behind. The {10-Spades} turn gave him what he needed though, and the {2-Diamonds} river was a brick.

Reading is up to about 495,000. Players are now on break.
