Smith Outruns Shevlyakov's Set on the River

dsalituro • Level 8: 600-1,200, 1,200 ante

Aleksandr Shevlyakov bet 16,000 on a board of {j-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{7-Spades} before Dusti Smith moved all in for her last 28,000 from the hijack. Shevlyakov waited until the dealer was finished counting Smith's stack before throwing in a chip to call.

Dusti Smith: {j-Spades}{10-Spades}
Aleksandr Shevlyakov: {6-Diamonds}{6-Spades}

Smith had flopped top two pair, but Shevlyakov had the lead with a set of sixes. The river brought the {10-Diamonds}, improving Smith to a full house and securing her the double up.

"The poker gods are looking after you," a tablemate said to her after the hand.
