Brutal Cooler: Straight Flush Against Ace-High Flush

KaleGozer • Level 5: 25,600-51,200, 0 ante
Straight flush vs. ace-high flush

David Peters completed and Michael Addamo checked his option. The flop was {6-Spades}{7-Spades}{4-Spades} and Addamo check-called 51,200 from Addamo. The {3-Spades} brought a fourth spade and Addamo check-called a second barrel of 163,840.

The {j-Hearts} river prompted a third check from the Aussie. This time, Peters went for the overbet and slid in 768,000. Addamo dove deep in the tank before responding with an all-in shove. Peters quickly called it off for the 921,291 he had behind.

Michael Addamo: {a-Spades}{4-Hearts}
David Peters: {8-Diamonds}{5-Spades}

Addamo had the ace-high flush but as if it were a James Bond movie, Peters had the one card to beat him — the five of spades — to take the lead with a straight flush.
