Williams' Top Pair Holds on Dangerous Board


Nicholas Derke was in the hijack when he raised, prompting a re-raise from Williams. The button and blinds folded around to Derke, who made the call.

The flop came down {7-Spades}{a-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} with Derke checking, only to raise Williams' bet. When the {5-Hearts} fell on the turn, Derke led out with a bet, and called a raise from Williams. The river was {6-Hearts} and Derke opted to check, later calling one last bet from Williams.

Williams showed {a-Spades}{q-Hearts} and Derke mucked.
