Griffin Drops One

A player in middle position bet out and made it 900, Kenneth Griffin in the hijack made the call as well as the player on the button. With a {2-Spades}{2-Hearts}{5-Clubs} flop being spread out the initial raiser checked, and Griffin bet 2,000. Both the middle position player and the button opted to call and it was three people to the turn.

After the {3-Hearts} landed on fourth street the middle position player checked and and Griffin again bet, this time 6,000 and again the two other players called.

A {k-Hearts} river allowed for everyone to check and turn over their cards. Griffin showed {6-Hearts}{6-Clubs} for a pair of sixes, and his opponent from the middle position showed {9-}{9-} for a pair of nines. The other player mucked and the middle position player was awarded the pot.
