Event #60: $50,000 Poker Players Championship

Friedman Rivers the Nuts

zedmaster84 • Level 14: 4,000-8,000, 8,000 ante

No-Limit Hold'em

Eli Elezra had just folded the overbet by Roman Yitzhaki on the {q-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{a-Spades} river and Dan Cates then raised to 20,000 from under the gun. Yitzhaki and Adam Friedman in the big blind called to see a flop of {a-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} on which Friedman checked, Cates bet 25,000 and received two calls.

The {9-Spades} turn was checked to Yitzhaki and he bet 65,000 for Friedman to call and Cates to fold. Friedman checked the {3-Clubs} river and Yitzhaki checked behind to get shown {7-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} for the nut straight by Friedman. He flashed an ace and Friedman immediately said "good check."
