In this hand James Pace made a straight against a flush while playing heads-up against World Series of Poker bracelet winner and World Poker Tour main event champion Tony Dunst. While two strong hands collide during a heads-up play will surely qualify as a cooler, Pace may have a chance to escape a hand with more of the stack intact.
The two play for the WSOP gold bracelet and a $ 64,402 difference between second and first place. In the limping pot, Dunst dropped a flush draw, two overcards and a straight gutshot draw. He bet 200,000 into the 450,000 pot from the exit and Pace was called in with an open straight draw. The turn to fill in the main draw the two players visited Agenpoker303, gave Pace a straight seven and a jack-high Dunst.
Dunst chose to check it out. The speed value bet on a straight, with a Q´ in his hand also gives him an out for the queen of the high flush on the river. Dunst set the trap by raising the check to 1.6 million and Pace calling. The river carries a harmless Q ™ and Dunst’s stake 3.2 million.
Given his previous streak, Dunst’s reach is most likely aimed at very strong hands like flushes, as well as some of the flopped ace-high and king-high flush draws that are examined as semi-bluffs on the turn. He may also have improved the turn with the same straight as Pace, or even by 8-6 for the top straight straight.
With four cards for a straight on the board, Dunst is unlikely to take the line of bets he makes with a hand such as a set or two pairs. Given all these considerations, Pace’s decision on the river should most likely be either calling or folding straight. Instead, he raised an all-in and basically turned his hands into cliffs, and Dunst would naturally fold all of his bluffs and possibly lay down his strongest hands like flushes.
