Event #73: $1,000 DOUBLE STACK No-Limit Hold'em (30 minute levels)

Sexton Straightens Snow

• Level 3: 75-150, 0 ante
Mike Sexton earlier this summer

With about 1,700 chips in the pot and the board reading {7-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}, both blinds checked and the under-the-gun player bet 1,100. Alan Snow called from early position, Mike Sexton called from the cutoff, and everyone else got out of the way.

The {9-Clubs} fell on the turn and the under-the-gun player bet 2,200. Snow shoved for about 8,000, Sexton called to put himself at risk, the original bettor folded, and the two live players tabled their hands.

Alan Snow: {9-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}
Mike Sexton: {8-Hearts}{5-Hearts}

Snow had flopped open-ended straight and flush draws in addition to having paired up on the turn, but Sexton had the best of it with an nine-high straight. The {2-Clubs} on the river was no help to Snow and Sexton took the pot to leave Snow running on fumes.
