Middleton Riverton


Tom Middleton has traveled from halfway across the world to be with us here today and so far he's making good use of his time. A recent hand saw Middleton call the all-in raise from the player directly to his right.

Middleton: {a-Clubs}{10-Spades}
Opponent: {6-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}

When the board had ran out {q-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{q-Clubs}, it was looking like the pair of sixes for Middleton's opponent would be good enough to survive. That all changed on the river when the {j-Diamonds} hit the felt, negating the sixes and giving Middleton the best hand with his ace.
