A gut-shot straight on the river gave player jraye87 the $25,000 first prize in Bodog.com's $100K Sunday Guaranteed this weekend. Jraye87 had an easy final call to make when i12play bluffed all-in with nothing but a missed flush-draw.
The board showed J-8-7-A-T when i12play decided to push all chips into the middle. Little did he know that Jraye87 was sitting with 9-7, and thus had made a straight.
Jraye87 was, however, rather lucky to be alive at that point in the heads-up match against i12play. In a previous hand, Jraye12 was all-in with mid-pair versus top-pair on the flop, but caught trips on the turn to double up.
The victory in the Bodog.com $100K Sunday Guaranteed was worth $25,000 while runner-up i12play had to settle for $14,000.
In total, 864 people played in the tournament, the highest number of entrants in recent weeks.
The final results are as follows:
|4th||Joe "PearlJammer" Turner||$6,500|
|6th||Papa Bull XL||$4,400|
