Hawrilenko's Great Escape


From the UTG +1 position, Matt Hawrilenko raised to 250 and the action folded to another player in middle position, who made it 775 to go. Hawrilenko called, then both players checked the flop of {J-Spades}{9-Clubs}{K-Diamonds} before Hawrilenko bet 1,050 on the turn of the {6-Hearts}. The middle position player called, then Hawrilenko checked his option on the river {Q-Hearts}, only to fold after his adversary opened for 1,500.

As Hawrilenko went to muck his hand, he flashed {A-}{K-}, but his opponent reciprocated, showing {Q-}{Q-} before the dealer pushed the pot. Phew!
