"Torpedo" Makes the Right Call

HillKerby • Level 2: 100-200, 200 ante
Justin Thurlow

Justin Thurlow, known among many locally as "Torpedo" opened to 600 in the hijack and was called by both players in the blinds. The flop fell {a-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{8-Spades} and all three players checked.

The turn came {4-Clubs} and the small blind bet 600. The big blind folded and Thurlow called, bringing the river {k-Spades}. The small blind bet another 1,000 and Thurlow thought for about 25 seconds before tossing up a T1,000 chip a foot or so into the air so that its trajectory went in an arc before it landed in the middle of the table for a call.

The small blind tabled {k-Hearts}{7-Hearts} for a rivered pair of kings to go along with his missed nut flush draw, and Thurlow showed {a-Spades}{7-Spades} for a pair of sevens to win him the pot.
