Wally Maddah

Jeff Madsen limped for 30,000 and Wally Maddah checked his option.

The flop was 10hJs8s and Maddah check-called 35,000 from Madsen.

The turn was the 6h and both checked.

The river was the 6s, Maddah checked, Madsen bet the pot of 130,000, Maddah check-raised all in for 240,000 and Madsen called with 7c6c5d4c for trip sixes.

Maddah, though, had flopped a straight with Qs9s3c3d and doubled up with a flush.

Wally Maddah  –  610,000  (20 bb)
Jeff Madsen  –  935,000  (31 bb)
