Watson Lands a Fortuitous River to Take the Lead

MartianNews • Level 15: 2,500-5,000, 625 ante

Mark Radoy opened to 9,000 from under the gun, Mikhail "Protrener1" Soltanov called and Mike Watson raised to 36,000. Action folded to Soltanov who shoved his 342,213 stack into the middle and Watson called.

Mikhail "Protrener1" Soltanov: {k-Hearts}{k-Clubs}
Mike Watson: {q-Spades}{q-Clubs}

The flop came down {10-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} and Soltanov was still well in front with his cowboys. An {8-Clubs} turn brought straight outs for Watson and the {j-Spades} river completed it, giving Watson a straight and the pot as Soltanov was eliminated.
