Rubie vs. Truong

Tam Truong and Brendon Rubie have been battling it out on more than one occasion ever since the latter was moved to the table. In a recent hand, we caught the action on the turn with a board reading {J-Clubs}{8-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}. Rubie had checked to Truong, who fired out a bet of 100,000.

Rubie thought long and hard before making the call, and then checking the {7-Spades} river. Truong slowly slid out a bet of 150,000, and Rubie snapped. Truong sheepishly turned over {Q-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} while Rubie took down the pot with a {10-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} straight.
