With around 1,500 in the pot and a flop of , Ran Azor checked from the big blind to Brian Roberts, who bet 725. Azor responded with a check-raise to 2,600, Roberts moved all in for right around 5,000, and Azor made a quick call.
Roberts was ahead with top and bottom pairs, but he needed to dodge Azor's flush and gut-shot straight draw. He did so on the turn, but not on the river. Azor spiked a diamond to take down the pot, send a tough opponent to the rail, and vault into the chip lead.
