Darryll Fish opened the button with a raise to 225,000, and Andy Frankenberger three-bet shoved for 1,945,000 in the big blind. Fish called to put him at risk.
“Thomas, you’ve been good to me,” Frankenberger reminded his favorite dealer. “How about a Jack of Spades on the flop?”
Sure enough, the flop came to give him the lead with top pair. There was still a sweat, though, as Fish had an open-ended straight draw in addition to his overcard.
The turn and river completed the board with blanks, though, and Frankenberger celebrated his double-up.
Andy Frankenberger – 3,985,000 (40 bb)
Darryll Fish – 8,450,000 (85 bb)
