Mamaliadis Doubles; Martinez Crippled


On a flop of {4-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{6-Spades}, Konstantinos Mamaliadis bet 178,000 from the big blind only to have Massimiliano Martinez, who had the bigger stack, move all in from the button. Mamaliadis called off for 1,093,000 and the cards were turned up.

Mamaliadis: {5-Clubs}{3-Clubs}
Martinez: {8-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}

While Martinez had flopped top pair with a gut-shot straight draw, Mamaliadis held an open-ended straight draw and a flush draw. No doubt it was an exciting flop, but that excitement was extinguished when the {9-Clubs} gave Mamaliadis the flush on the turn and left Martinez drawing dead.

The {3-Spades} was put out on the river, as Mamaliadis doubled to 2.2 million; meanwhile, Martinez was crippled and left with just 235,000.
