Bump Set Spike

Level 7 : 150-300, 25 ante

We heard a collective shout at the sight of a river card while recording Keven Stammen's recent elimination of a player, and after heading over to take a look, it turned out Idris Drief had cracked jacks with his pair of threes.

According to an extremely relieved Drief, he raised before the flop and one opponent flatted to see the dealer fan {2-Clubs}{7-Spades}{4-Diamonds}. With {3-Hearts}{3-Spades} in the hole and a baby card board, Drief read his man for ace-king and fired away with a c-bet of 800.

The other player in the hand liked his holding, however, and he raised to 2,500, leaving Drief to make an all-in shove for 5,825 hoping he had caught a big slick bluff. Unfortunately for him the read was off base, as he was actually up against {j-Spades}{j-Clubs}.

The turn card came {6-Spades} to provide the requisite sweat, as Drief picked up a gutshot straight draw, but it was the {3-Diamonds} on the river that left the table gasping at the suckout.
