Swift Hits a River Straight on Newland

GeoffFisk • Level 26: 30,000-60,000, 60,000 ante

Vincent Newland opened to 140,000 from the cutoff with {k-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}, and Jon Swift made the call with {7-Spades}{7-Clubs} in the big blind.

Swift check-called a 125,000 bet from Newland on the {k-Spades}{5-Clubs}{6-Spades} flop. The turn {8-Clubs} brought in an open-ended straight draw for Swift, and he check-called a 285,000 bet from Newland.

The straight came in for Swift on the {9-Hearts} river, rendering Newland's top pair no good. Swift checked, and Newland checked back.

Both players sit at 2,900,000 in the aftermath of the hand.
