Josh Arieh

Matt Lambrecht raised to 2,800 from the cutoff, Eric Siegel called on the button, and Josh Arieh three-bet to 10,200 from the small blind.

Lambrecht four-bet to 26,000, Siegel folded, Arieh five-bet all in for 43,400, and Lambrecht called with AsJs. Arieh was leading with AcAd.

The flop came Th9h8d, giving Lambrecht an open-ended straight draw.

The 6d turn and 4d river completed the board, safe for Arieh to double up.
