Monnette Runs Down a Pot

Nivel 2 : 50-100, 0 ante

John Monnette got an opponent all in on a {4-Hearts} {2-Diamonds} {9-Hearts} flop, and both he and his opponent had just less than 7,000 chips at that point.

Monnette: {A-Hearts} {3-Spades} {10-Spades} {J-Hearts}
Opponent: {A-Diamonds} {3-Clubs} {2-Hearts} {5-Diamonds}

Both players were drawing to the same nut low, and both had draws to the high half as well. The turn {Q-Spades} and river {K-Clubs} gave Monette the running straight, though, and there was no low possible. He scoops the pot to nearly double to about 15,000, and the opponent was forced to cash in both of his add-on chips to start over with 10,000 chips.
