Gamble Peels a Double

dsalituro • Level 19

Nathan Gamble: {x-}{x-}/{6-Hearts}{q-Spades}{9-Spades}{9-Diamonds}/{x-}
John Monnette: {x-}{x-}/{3-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{8-Spades}{4-Clubs}/{x-}
Michael Gyger: {x-}{x-}/{7-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}/{x-}

Michael Gyger bet on both fourth and fifth streets and was called by Nathan Gamble and John Monnette. On sixth, Gamble paused for a moment before putting out a bet, leaving himself only 7,000 behind.

Monnette called and Gyger raised. Gamble called all in, while Monnette also called. Both Gyger and Monnette checked on seventh.

Monnette showed {7-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{k-Diamonds} for a flush and Gyger had {a-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{8-Hearts} for a low. Gamble showed the {6-Spades}{4-Spades} first and needed to catch another spade to stay alive. He peeled his last card and thought it was a deuce before he exposed the {k-Spades} to make his flush.

Gamble and Gyger split the pot, while Monnette was left watching his chips split between his two opponents.
