Dirty Turn For Nitsche

Dominik Nitsche just lost a big pot after folding on the turn when the worst possible card hit. The hand started off with a limp from the player under the gun. Another player limped after which the action got raised to 950. Dominik Nitsche called from the button as did the cut-off and the two limpers.

The flop, {K-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{8-Diamonds}, was five-way and the second limper bet 2,700. The initial raiser called and Dominik Nitsche decided to raise to 7,700 from the button. Interesting enough the first limper now joined the action and called after which the other two players, who had already invested 2,700, folded their cards.

The turn was the {q-Diamonds}, completing straight and flush draws. Nitsche was put to the test as his opponent put him all-in for his last 15,200 chips. The German professional tanked for ages before he folded and said he folded pocket eights. A very tough spot for Nitsche who lost almost half his stacks since play begun.
