Bozarth Flushes Coliny for Double

AnthonyThompson • Level 24: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

Justin Coliny raised to 100,000 from the hijack and then called the 345,000 three-bet jam Josh Bozarth made from the cutoff.

Josh Bozarth: {a-Spades}{10-Clubs}
Justin Coliny: {6-Clubs}{6-Hearts}

Bozarth was behind holding two overs but didn't mind the {q-Spades}{8-Spades}{5-Spades} flop that gave him the nut flush draw.

The sweat didn't last long for Bozarth as the {2-Spades} turn completed his flush and the {k-Clubs} river secured his double-up.
