Big Blind Special

BrandonBloom • Level 35: 60,000-120,000, 120,000 ante

Three players limped preflop, including Orson Young on the button, before Gershon Distenfeld checked his option.

The {7-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} flop was checked around. The {6-Clubs} came on the turn and Distenfeld bet 270,000. Only Young continued.

The {a-Hearts} completed the board and Distenfeld fired out a bet of 360,000. Young thought about it and called.

Distenfeld showed {j-Clubs}{7-Hearts} to take the pot with trip sevens.

"Big blind special," said Distenfeld. "That's the title. Big blind special."
