Montgomery Gets There


Scott Montgomery opened to 175 preflop and was called by two players, including Alexander Kostritsyn. It was checked to Montgomery who potted (550) on the {K-Clubs}{10-Spades}{7-Hearts} and Kostritsyn made the call. The turn was the {4-Hearts} and Kostritsyn check-raised all in against another Montgomery pot bet for a total of 5,350 (Montgomery's bet was 1,650). The Canadian called and it was showdown time.

Kostritsyn: {K-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{4-Clubs}
Montgomery: {Q-Hearts}{Q-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}

Montgomery needed a jack, queen or six that wasn't a heart to win the pot and his salvation came in the form of the {Q-Clubs} river. He covered the Russian, who was knocked out as a result
