Rettenmaier's Straight Stays Good

Marvin Rettenmaier

Joseph El Khoury opened to 100,000 and Marvin Rettenmaier defended in the big blind. Both players checked a wet flop of {J-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{10-Spades} before Rettenmaier led for 155,000 on the {9-Hearts} turn.

El Khoury, who can be hard to push off a hand, made the call to see the {5-Hearts} river. Rettenmaier thought for a minute and checked and El Khoury quickly checked behind.

The German showed {Q-Spades}{8-Spades} for the turned straight and it was enough to beat El Khoury, the latter is starting to get short again.
