Josephy Rivers a Straight

Cliff Josephy hasn't had trouble getting chips today.

We found Cliff Josephy, on the button, raising up a bet of 4,000 from the cutoff to 13,000. The board read {9-Clubs}{8-Spades}{8-Clubs}{j-Spades}. A third player, who had checked from the blinds, cold-called the bet. The original bettor called as well after a few minutes of tanking. The river brought a {10-Diamonds}, completing the four-straight, and the first two players checked to Josephy.

"I'm afraid," he said as he checked. The first player showed {a-Clubs}{j-Clubs} for top pair and a missed flush draw.

"I've got that beat," Josephy said. The cutoff seemed reluctant to table his hand, so Josephy announced that he had a straight, turning over {6-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}. The cutoff mucked, and Josephy dragged the pot.
