Thiago Costa raised to 20,000 on the button and Miguel Martinez called out of the small blind.

The flop was KcTc9c and Martinez led out for 30,000. Costa moved all in for 163,000 and Martinez thought for a few moments.

“This is one of those interesting spots,” said Martinez while he mulled over his decision.

Eventually, Martinez called and showed QhJd. Martinez flopped a king-high straight and needed to fade a club against Costa’s Ac7d.

The turn was the 4c, however, and Costa let out a celebratory shout as he made the nuts and left Martinez drawing dead to the 7h river.

Costa takes over the chip lead and Martinez is left with less than a big blind.

Thiago Costa – 380,000
Miguel Martinez – 6,000
