The board read and Frank Mariani checked from the big blind position to Marvin Rettenmaier who then bet 8,600. Mariani check-raised to 20,000 and Rettenmair then threw in enough for a call.
The river was the and Mariani checked to Rettenmaier who would think for several moments before slowly pushing in a bet of 34,600. Mariani counted out the chips and stuck them into the pot, calling the bet.
Rettenmaier tabled for the nut flush and Mariani just smiled, as he turned up for a turned set and not enough to beat the flush.
Rettenmaier has been on a heater to start the day and after that pot, he is nearing the top of the food chain.
