Anderson Takes Big Chip Lead

mnuwwarah • Level 26: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante
Matthew Anderson has the chip lead after holding against a combo draw.

After a flop of {q-Spades}{5-Clubs}{10-Spades}, Jeremy Putthoff checked in the small blind. Matthew Anderson bet, and Putthoff shoved all in and was called.

Putthoff: {a-Spades}{j-Spades}
Anderson: {k-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}

Anderson's top pair was good for the moment, but Putthoff held a flush draw, an over, and a gutter. The {8-Hearts} gave him even more outs since a nine would make him a straight, but the river was a brick: {10-Hearts}.
