With 5300 already invested in the pot, Day faced an all in raise by Waldron for 24,500 total. After a few moments of thought, she said aloud, “alright, let’s gamble” and called. She held a K♠ J♠ against Waldron’s A♥ T♣, and the not-quite-but-almost-a-coinflip race was on.
The A♣ T♠ 4♣ flop hit Waldron hard, but did leave Day drawing to a gutshot or runner runner flush draw.
The turn was the K♣, giving Waldron a few two more kings to hit but losing one of her straight draw outs.
The river was a harmless 4♦, thus giving Eric Waldron the double up!
Eric Waldron: 54,000
Michelle Day: 95,000
