Josh Reichard is seated on Miranda 631. We caught him in a recent pot with an opponent on a flop of . Reichard was first to act and he checked over to his one opponent. She bet 3,200 and Reichard called.
On the turn Reichard checked again and his opponent bet 5,000. Reichard released his hand.
"Whew," his opponent said. "I finally got there. Thanks for the chips."
"No problem," Reichard responded.
