Staszko's Duck Call

Martin Staszko

Under the gun, Hilton Laborda raised to 220,000, and he found calls from John Esposito and Martin Staszko, the latter joining the fun for a discount from the big blind.

The flop brought {4-Spades} {3-Hearts} {A-Spades}, and it checked around to the {3-Spades} turn. There, Staszko led out into the pot with 285,000, Laborda called, and Esposito folded out of the way. Heads-up now, the river came the {5-Clubs}, and Staszko put out one last bet, 675,000. The call came from Laborda, but we'd never see his cards. Staszko showed {2-Clubs} {2-Spades} for the straight, and it's good enough to earn him that pot.
