Scott Smile

Action started in a five-way limped pot on the flop. The flop came out {8-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{a-Spades}. All five players checked through.

The turn was the {6-Diamonds}. Action checked all the way to Ben Lamb on the button who bet 30,000. Scott Smile called two seats to his left, and Rast called in between the two.

The river {k-Clubs} hit the river and action checked to Lamb once again. He checked back. Smile showed {9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} for the straight, both Lamb and Rast mucked.

"You're supposed to bet there, you've got good instincts," said Smile.

"If he had good instincts, he would have saved 30," said Sean Winter.
