Asher Neaman

Shannon Shorr raised from middle position to 150,000, Asher Conniff called from the small blind, and Asher Neaman called from the big blind.

The flop came Qc9d4c, and it checked to Shorr, who bet 150,000. Conniff quickly folded, and Neaman check-raised to 550,000. Shorr thought for a while before he called.

The turn card was the 6h, and Neaman moved all in for exactly 2,500,000. Shorr thought for a while before he folded, and Neaman said, “I’ll show you one time.”

Neaman turned over 8c7d for eight high with an open-ended straight draw as he took the pot.

Asher Neaman  –  4,125,000  (55 bb)
Shannon Shorr  –  6,150,000  (82 bb)
