Aaron "Kreskin" Steury Calls Adam Friedman Down With Just Queen-High


After Aaron Steury limped in on the small blind, Adam Friedman raised to 100,000 holding the button, Steury responded with a three-bet, making it 150,000 to go before the flop. Friedman came along and the dealer spread the {6-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{10-Hearts} across the table.

Steury led out for 50,000 on the flop and Friedman came along.

Turn: {K-Hearts}.

Steury again led out, this time for the big bet of 100,000 and again Friedman made the call.

River: {2-Spades}

Steury slowed down and checked to Friedman, who fired a final bullet of 100,000 into the middle. Steury stared his man down for thirty seconds or so and apparently picked up a tell, because he made the call and waited for Friedman to table his hand. When Friedman obliged, he could only produce the {9-Hearts}{7-Hearts} for a busted drawing hand.

Steury then calmly showed down the {Q-Clubs}{J-Clubs} for his own missed straight draw and just queen-high. Friedman, along with the railbirds, were stunned to see Steury's holding and this amazing read gave him an unlikely win.
