As we caught the action, three players were involved in a still modest pot. All three of them checked on before big blind Dan Shak bet out 2,000 on the turn. Mikita Badziakouski, in the hijack, called and so did Charlie Carrel on the button. The river wasn't changing the board all that much and Shak bet 8,000 into the 8,600 pot. Carrel called and Shak was quick to show . Carrel tabled and they chopped the pot.
Carrel jokingly remarked he felt he earned more than half of the pot because he had two straights. The dealer did not oblige.
