Pechie Makes Correct Laydown on Dicey River

blaisebourgeois • Level 33: 150,000-300,000, 300,000 ante
Justin Pechie

Justin Pechie opened to 650,000 with {q-Diamonds}{q-Clubs} from the hijack and Maxime Parys flatted {10-Spades}{9-Spades} from the button. Steve Zolotow also defended the button with {3-Spades}{3-Clubs}.

The flop came {7-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{j-Spades} and Pechie was still in front despite Parys flopping a pair of tens, a straight draw, and a backdoor flush draw.

Pechie continued for 900,000 and Parys called. Zolotow got out of the way.

The {3-Diamonds} rolled off on the turn, which would have given Zolotow a set. Pechie tapped the table over to Parys who also checked.

The {9-Clubs} hit the river, giving Parys two pair and the best hand. Parys bet 1,000,000 on the river into a 4,200,000-chip pot.

Pechie went deep into the tank for nearly five minutes before he ended up making the correct fold.
