Leo Boxell

A player in middle position opened for 1,650 and Leo Boxell called from the cutoff. Both the button and the blinds got out of the way and the flop came down {4-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}. The MP player led out for 3,700, and Boxell wasted little time in moving all in for 12,675 more. TheMP player leaned back in his chair and announced a call.



Boxell was in trouble and knew it. He gave a glance at his opponent as if to say, "I should have know," and the watched as the dealer burned and turned the {7-Diamonds}. Boxell picked up a flush draw to go with his outs, and let the slightest of smiles cross his face when the {J-Spades} spiked on the river to give him the win.
