Rodriguez Takes Massive Pot with Straight Over Straight

GeoffFisk • Level 15: 1,500-3,000, 3,000 ante
Noel Rodriguez

Jesse Lonis opened to 6,500 under the gun, Noel Rodriguez called from the cutoff, and Dapo Ajayi called in the big blind.

All three players checked the {9-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{4-Spades} flop. Ajayi checked the {j-Spades} turn, Lonis bet 12,000, Rodriguez raised to 43,000, Ajayi folded, and Lonis called.

The river brought the {9-Hearts}, Lonis checked and Rodriguez went all in for 92,500.

Lonis went deep into the tank, and after several moments decided on a call. Both players turned over a straight, but it was Rodriguez' {k-Diamonds}{q-Clubs} getting the best of Lonis' {8-Spades}{7-Spades}.

The pot put Rodriguez in the mix near the top of the leaderboard.
