Aston Get Value From Birman


Paul Birman raised to 550 under the gun and Anthony Aston defended his big blind. The flop came down {A-Spades}{K-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} and Aston check-called 850. On the turn the {8-Hearts} showed up and Aston lead out for 1,350. Birman called.

The river brought out the {10-Spades} and Aston bet 2,550. Birman made the call was mucked when Aston showed {A-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}. He later claimed to have had {A-}{J-}. Aston climbs up to almost twice the starting stack while Birman also has more than what everyone started with.
