Another Painful River Fold for Nakamura

TerranceReid • Level 12: Blinds 1,500-3,000, 3,000 ante
Craig McCorkell

A big pot was brewing on the river between Tamon Nakamura and Craig McCorkell.

Nakamura was in the big blind looking at a board of {2-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{4-Spades}. WIth about 70,000 in the pot, Nakamura led for 50,000.

McCorkell responded to that lead by moving all his chips in the middle. He had Nakamura covered, so the bet was for Nakamura's remaining 107,000.

After quite a bit of thought, Nakamura frustratingly folded, showing the {6-Spades} face up.
