Straight flush on the river

Straight flush on the river

Chip leader “Bärpoker” limps into a pot with a dead ghost. “rsnbrgr” checks his option and flops a nut straight.

“rsnbrgr” bets 2/3 of the pot to make a flush draw pay for the privilege. “Bärpoker” flat-calls it. The turn breaks the nut straight but it gives “rsnbrgr” an open-ended straight flush draw. He bets 5/7 of the pot to make other flush draws pay.

The river completes the straight flush and, better yet, it pairs the board. “rsnbrgr” bets less than 1/3 of the pot, praying his opponent made a full house or a flush. But his opponent simply folds.
