Merivirta Fills Up

Level 1 : 500-1,000, 100 ante

Jyri Merivirta bet into two opponents on fourth and fifth with a queen-high board, getting one fold on the latter street. However, Eric Kurtzman raised him after catching a king, and Merivirta called.

Merivirta: {x-}{x-}/{q-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{j-Spades}
Kurtzman: {x-}{x-}/{10-Clubs}{7-Spades}{k-Hearts}{q-Hearts}

Kurtzman bet again on sixth, but Merivirta raised him. Kurtzman called and then called a river bet. Merivirta showed {j-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{9-Spades} for a disguised full house and took the pot.
