Patience Is Key for Kordys

AnthonyThompson • Level 28: 40,000-80,000, 80,000 ante
Rafal Kordys

Steven Mccullough opened for 180,000 from the cutoff and Rafal Kordys three-bet all in for 1,540,000 from the small blind. Action was back on Mccullough who called.

Rafal Kordys: {a-Clubs}{k-Hearts}
Steven Mccullough: {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts}

Kordys was ahead but had a sweat after the {j-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{9-Hearts} flop gave Mccullough the nut-flush draw.

The turn paired both players with the {a-Diamonds} and the river fell a blank with the {3-Diamonds} to give Kordys the double-up.
