Vinson Pays Off Potijk

Ben Vinson raised to 8,500 in the cutoff and Geert-Jan Potijk three-bet to 19,000 on the button. Vinson decided to peel, out of the position, and the pair shared a flop of {J-Spades} {9-Clubs} {4-Spades}. Vinson check-called a 16,000 Potijk bet and the dealer handed them the {8-Clubs} on the turn, which both players checked. The river card was the {10-Diamonds}, Vinson checked for a third time and Potijk bet 25,000; a bet that Vinson didn't like. He pulled every possible face you could think of before making the call and Potjik turned over {7-Clubs} {5-Spades} for the low end of the straight. Vinson mucked his hand.
