Drawing With The Best Hand

MrCleverFox • Level 16: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante
Luke Schwartz

Action folded around to Luke Schwartz in the cutoff. He raised to 10,500 and received a call from Andrea Carini on the button and John Scaife in the big blind.

The flop came down {2-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{4-Spades} and Scaife checked. Schwartz led with a bet of 17,000 and both players called.

The turn was the {J-Clubs} and Scaife decided to lead out with a bet of 37,000. Action was on Schwartz and he raised to 80,500. Carini folded quickly but Scaife went into the tank.

"Wow." he said. "I think i'm folding the best hand here," he said after about a minute in the tank. Eventually he let it go and Schwartz was awarded the pot.

"You didn't have the best hand," Schwartz said. "I was drawing, but I had the best hand as well. What did you have? Nines?"

Scaife explained that he better than that, but it didn't matter as Schwartz had already taken down the pot.
