Hand #290: Playing the Board

• Level 42: 1,000,000-2,000,000, 300,000 ante

Pius Heinz raised to 4.2 million from the button, and Martin Staszko called to see the flop.

It came {7-Spades} {9-Spades} {5-Hearts}, and the Czech led out into the pot with 5 million of his own chips. Heinz was the one doing the calling now, and the turn brought them the {8-Diamonds}. Staszko checked now, and Heinz checked it back to see the {6-Hearts} on the river. Check-check again.

Neither player could beat the board, and they chopped it up. We only caught a quick glimpse of the cards, but it looked like Staszko had flopped two pair with {7-Hearts} {9-Hearts}, and Heinz appeared to have {8-Diamonds} {4-Hearts} or {8-Hearts} {4-Diamonds}.
