Chad Brown Is a Straight-Shooter Today

After a flop of {K-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}, a player bets 11,500, another player calls, and Chad Brown calls. The turn card is the {2-Hearts}, the first player bets 19,000, the second player folds, Brown raises to 40,000, and his opponent calls. The river card pairs the board with the {9-Spades}, his opponent bets 30,000, and Brown calls.

It's a paired board with three hearts and pretty heavy betting, so Chad Brown says, "The only hand I can really beat is [pocket] aces," and he shows {Q-Hearts}{10-Spades} for the vulnerable king-high straight, which he flopped.

His opponent shows {A-Hearts}{A-Spades} for two pair, aces and nines, and Brown wins the pot, increasing his stack to about 240,000 in chips.

This is the second time today that Chad Brown has cracked aces with a straight.
