Small Flush Good Enough for Loureiro


From under the gun, Mattias Bergstrom raised to 22,000. Hugo Loureiro called from the hijack seat and Pascal Hartmann called from the big blind. The three players saw the flop came down {A-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{2-Spades} and action checked around. The turn was another diamond to put three out there with the {5-Diamonds} peeling. Again, action checked around.

After the {Q-Diamonds} hit the river to put four diamonds on board, Hartmann checked and Bergstrom bet 40,000. Loureiro tanked long and hard before making the call. Hartmann folded.

Bergstrom showed the {8-Hearts}{7-Hearts} and was unsuccessful in his attempt to buy the pot. Loureiro tabled the winner with the {4-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} for a flush.
