Giordano Binks Nuts on River

Level 3 : 100-200, 200 ante

With around 1,500 in the pot on a board reading {q-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}, James Giordano was facing a bet of 600 out of the big blind from Vadim Shlez in the cutoff. Giordano made the call and the turn came {a-Diamonds}. Giordano again checked to Shlez, who bet 2,000. Giordano called. The river was {3-Hearts} and Giordano led out for 3,600. Shlez confirmed the amount and thought for a few seconds before folding.

Giordano tabled {a-Hearts}{6-Hearts} and as he was in the process of doing it, Shlez said, "You have the nuts, I know." He was right as Giordano confirmed he had rivered the nut flush.
