Butler Gets Scooped

mnuwwarah • Level 25: 15,000-30,000, 0 ante

Ashly Butler put Vladimir Shchmelev all in on a flop of {6-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{8-Hearts}. He called.

Butler: {4-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{10-Spades}{10-Clubs}
Shchmelev: {a-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}

Butler was ahead with a pair of tens and a flush draw, while Shchmelev had a better low draw and a better straight draw. The turn was a {k-Diamonds}, changing nothing and leaving Butler in prime position to scoop the pot and enter heads-up play with a huge lead. However, the river came {7-Hearts}, and though Butler initially thought he was chopping with a straight against Shchmelev's low, Shchmelev had the better straight with a nine-high one, so he scooped Butler and grabbed the chip lead.
