Caleb Piderit raised to 6,500 from under the gun, the player in the cutoff called and the player on the button called.

The flop was 5d6s8c, Piderit continued for 11,000, the cutoff folded and the button raised to about 110,000.

Piderit thought for about two minutes before he called all in for 107,500 with 7d7h for a pair of sevens with an open-ended straight draw, leading his opponent’s 9c6c for a pair of sixes with a straight draw.

The 5c turn gave Piderit’s opponent additional outs with a flush draw, but the Qs river was safe for Piderit to double up.
