KaleGozer • Level 31: 80,000-160,000, 160,000 ante
Jared Koppel

Hand #237: Jared Koppel raised to 380,000 on the button and Roman Korenev defended his big blind. The flop fell {8-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{3-Spades} and Korenev check-called 250,000 from Koppel.

On the turn {k-Diamonds}, Korenev check-called a second bet of 575,000 from Koppel to see the {9-Diamonds} river complete a possible backdoor flush. Korenev checked, Koppel bet 2,290,000, Korenev check-raised all in and Koppel snap-called for 7,100,000 total.

Korenev showed {j-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} for a backdoor jack-high flush, only to come up second best to Koppel's {a-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} for the nut flush. After the stacks were counted out, it was Koppel who regained the lead.
