Nuts or Nothing

zedmaster84 • Level 8: 300-600, 75 ante

A Russian player raised to 1,300 and got called before Ara Melkistian three-bet to 4,300 and received two calls. On the {Q-Clubs} {4-Diamonds} {J-Clubs} flop, Melkistian made a continuation bet of 6,700 and was called by the Russian only to fire another 13,500 on the {9-Spades} turn. His opponent didn't go anywhere, prompting Melkistian to shove the {3-Spades} river for effectively 22,800.

That's the amount the Russian had left and the latter thought out loudly that Melkistian either had the nuts or nothing. It was a bad call, as Melkistian turned over {Q-Spades} {Q-Spades} for top set and scooped the pot versus {A-Hearts} {J-Hearts}.
