Zev Mandel (left) and Jade Killian

There was five-way action in a limped pot. Zev Mandel was under the gun with Jade Killian on his direct left. Also in the game was a late-position player as well as the small and big blinds.

The flop came JsTs2c. It checked to Mandel who bet 3,000. Killian called and all other players in the pot folded.

The heads-up turn fell the 9c. Mandel lead for an all-in bet of 11,300. Killian called putting Mandel at risk.

Killian: Qs8c for a queen-high straight
Mandel: KdJc for top pair and a gutshot draw

River: Qc

Mandel came from behind spiking his gutshot draw and leaving Killian speechless. Killian had a few chips left, but it was futile as she got them in the middle a short while later only to bust.

The pot grew Mandel’s stack to around 40,000.
