Grigg Tanks with the Second Nuts

• Level 12: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante

With around 9,000 in the pot and a flop of {10-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}, an unknown player in the small blind checked and Tom Grigg bet 5,700 from the button. A call was made and then the dealer burned and turned the {8-Hearts}. The small blind checked once again, but this time he woke up with a check-raise to 30,000 when Grigg bet 13,700. The latter thought for a few moments before calling, and that brought about the {2-Clubs} on the river.

The small blind kept the pressure on by betting 35,000, and Grigg, who only had about 35,700, hit the tank. He thought for a solid minute before tossing in a call and the small blind showed the {K-Spades}{Q-Clubs} for a missed straight. Grigg then tabled the {9-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} for the second nuts.

Richard Ashby, who was seated to Grigg's right, asked what took him so long. "He could have had {Q-}{9-}," Griggs replied.
