Edgar Flips a Flush


With a raise to 3,400 and an all-in shove for 32,000 in front of him, Chris Edgar looked down at {a-Diamonds}{k-Hearts} in the small blind and re-raised to a total of 70,000. The early-position raiser thought long and hard before making a reluctant fold as Edgar found himself racing with the short stack’s {7-Hearts}{7-Spades}.

Edgar didn’t hit a pair but the {q-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{6-Hearts} board gave him the king-high flush which was good to collect the pot and eliminate his opponent.
