Kirby's Boat Sinks Putthoff's Flush

mnuwwarah • Level 27: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante
Matt Kirby has a commanding lead now.

Matt Kirby raised to 110,000 in the small blind, and Jeremy Putthoff defended. Kirby bet the same amount on a {6-Clubs}{q-Hearts}{6-Hearts} flop, and again Putthoff called. Kirby fired a second barrel for 245,000 on the {k-Clubs}, and Putthoff called again. On the {9-Clubs} river, Kirby bet 565,000, and Putthoff shoved. Kirby snap-called, tabling {k-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} for a full house, which beat Putthoff's {q-Clubs}{7-Clubs} for a flush.

After that hand, Putthoff shipped all in from the small blind and was called by Matthew Anderson in the big blind.

Putthoff: {q-Hearts}{2-Hearts}
Anderson: {k-Clubs}{10-Spades}

Putthoff managed to survive when the board came {q-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{7-Clubs}, and Anderson's now the short stack.
