Flavin's Aces Get Caught in a Downpour

BrandonTemple • Level 21: 10,000-15,000, 15,000 ante
Ray Flavin

Bjorn Peterson and Ray Flavin got in a preflop raising war that saw Flavin get his last 450,000 in from under the gun, and Peterson had him at risk in the cutoff.

Ray Flavin: {a-Clubs}{a-Hearts}
Bjorn Peterson: {a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}

"Time to see how good I'm running!" Peterson, who had caught a flurry of premium hands in the span of a few minutes, said.

The table gasped when the {j-Spades}{10-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} brought Peterson a gutshot Broadway draw, and after the {6-Diamonds} turn, Peterson yelled "Queen-ball!"

The {q-Clubs} hit the river, and Peterson said, "When it rains, it pours," multiple times, shaking his head at his good fortune, while Flavin graciously shook Peterson's hand before heading off to get paid.
