Yu Straightens Out Pollak

poolshir • Level 20: 100,000-200,000, 200,000 ante

James Romero limped in on the button which invited Benjamin Pollak to come along from the small blind and Winfred Yu checked his option in the big blind. The flop came {q-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} and the action checked around to the {6-Spades} on the turn.

Pollak checked again and Yu tossed in a bet of 400,000. Romero quickly folded but Pollak called to see the {k-Diamonds} on the river. Pollak checked again and Yu slid in a bet of 1,200,000. Pollak thought for a minute and looked over at Yu before making the call. Yu flipped over {10-Clubs}{7-Diamonds} for a straight and Pollak sent his cards to the muck.
