Peng Punches Back

[user253757] • Level 21: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante
Xiao Peng

On the {10-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{q-Diamonds} flop Xiao Peng checked from the small blind, and holding the button Branton Cantu decided on a 28,000 bet.

Peng then popped it to 85,000 and Cantu quickly called to peel the {10-Diamonds} on the turn. Peng checked again, and after Cantu continued his line with a bet of 95,000, she deliberated for a long minute before cutting out and committing a stack of calling chips.

The dealer dropped the {3-Hearts} on the river and Peng checked for a third time, with Cantu following suit shortly afterward. Peng rolled over her {j-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} for a flopped straight and the winner, while Cantu could only wince and stare at the board.

"Did I miss a big pot?" Peng asked from across the table.

"That was a good river for me," replied Cantu, obviously glad he did not improve against Peng's made hand.
