Preflop, with the blinds at 400 and 800 and a 100 ante, Frankenberger raised to 1,700 from the cutoff seat, Sinishtaj called on the button, Jeremie Demri reraised to 5,600 from the small blind, Frankenberger called, and Sinishtaj called. On the flop Demri bet 9,100, Frankenberger raised all-in, Sinishtaj went all-in, and Demri folded.


Frankenberger and Sinishtaj absorbed Demri’s preflop reraise, taking their pocket pairs to the flop in position behind Demri. Once Demri led out with the standard continuation bet, Frankenberger shoved with his overpair to the flop and open ended straight draw. The flop was very promising for his hand, but he realized he would need to improve after Sinishtaj shoved behind him. The turn relieved much of Sinishtaj’s sweat, he had improved to a full house and the threat of Frankenberger’s straight draw was removed. Frankenberger still had counterfeit outs to the Eights, and his outs to the Nines to make a superior full house, but instead he made the losing straight on the river. Sinishtaj more than doubled on the hand owing to Demri’s investments, and eliminated a dangerous opponent in Frankenberger as well.
