Dwyte Pilgrim Straightens Out to Stay Afloat

[user253757] • Level 4: 150-300, 25 ante
Dwyte Pilgrim

After his starting stack of 30,000 had dwindled to the danger zone, circuit grinder and accomplished pro Dwyte Pilgrim moved all in over the top of a 700 bet, risking for his last 2,925 on the {j-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{7-Hearts} flop.

His opponent called with {9-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} and Pilgrim flipped up the {A-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}, meaning both players were drawing to straights, with Pilgrim's Broadway draw in front.

The turn brought the {10-Spades} to the table, pairing Pilgrim's opponent but giving him the nut straight. After an irrelevant {2-Diamonds} on the river, Pilgrim survived his all-in encounter to keep his short stack grind alive.
