Six-Card Straight Flush Earns a Double For Yu

MrCleverFox • Level 15: 10,000-15,000, 15,000 ante
2019 US Poker Open

Ben Yu opened with a raise to 55,000 and Brent Roberts called in the big blind.

The flop was {Q-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{9-Hearts} and Roberts immediately bet out 125,000. Yu thought only for a few seconds then moved all in and Roberts snap called.

Ben Yu: {K-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{K-Clubs}
Brent Roberts: {A-Hearts}{Q-Spades}{5-Hearts}{4-Spades}

The turn was the {J-Hearts} and Roberts said "Good game," to Yu, thinking he was drawing dead, but what he didn't immediately realize is that Yu made not only a straight flush, he made a six-card straight flush from eight to king. The river was a meaningless {9-Clubs} and Yu would double up.

"My brain did that at first too," Yu said. "I thought I was done."
