All In for Aldridge


We caught up to find Ken Aldridge making a bet of 800 from middle position preflop. Mike Watson in late position then reraised and made it 2,200. Guillaume Rivet then called on the button and Aldridge completed and all three players got to see a flop.

{10-Spades}{j-Spades}{K-Clubs} all graced the flop and it was Aldridge who came out the aggressor and moved all in for 15,125. After a few moments of contemplation Watson made the call, and Rivet folded.

Aldridge: {A-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}
Watson: {K-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}

Aldridge flopped broadway while Watson held top set. The dealer burned and turned a {3-Spades} which was a perfect card for Aldridge to see, as he still held the lead. Watson needed the board to pair or another king in order to take the pot down. The {6-Hearts} river ended up being another blank for Watson as Aldridge's straight held.
