Bilokur Backs Into Straight

• Level 24: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

Jonathan Duhamel raised the button to 100,000 with the {J-Clubs}{3-Hearts} and Leonid Bilokur called from the big blind with the {9-Hearts}{6-Spades} to see the flop come down {K-Clubs}{J-Spades}{5-Spades}. Both players checked and the turn brought the {Q-Diamonds}. Bilokur bet 150,000 and Duhamel called.

The river completed the board with the {10-Clubs} and Bilokur had backed into a straight. He checked, but Duhamel didn't bite. He checked behind.

Bilokur tabled his straight and Duhamel mucked his hand.
