Roberts Wins Nice One

It was the last hand before the break over on Brian Roberts' table which saw his stack rise to around 50,000. The hand in question began with the player in the cutoff opening the pot to 450. Roberts called on the button and with the rest of the table out of the way, the two players watched a {8-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{j-Hearts} flop spread on the felt.

Roberts' opponent led for 650 here and Roberts then took his time to raise it to 1,650. His opponent made a fairly quick call and the dealer flipped over a {6-Clubs} on the turn. This time Roberts' opponent checked and Roberts bet 2,900. Roberts' opponent opted to raise it here, throwing out 5,200. That amount wasn't enough for a full raise and so the player was made to raise it to 5,800. Roberts called and an {a-Diamonds} completed the board on the river. This time both players checked and Roberts turned over {j-Clubs}{5-Clubs} - enough to send his opponent's {k-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} into the muck.
