Buchanan: Flopping Straights For Fun

Shawn Buchanan - The king of the flops

We reported earlier how Shawn Buchanan had doubled up after flopping a straight and he has just flopped another one.

Jason Mercier bet 16,000 and Buchanan called. The flop was {K-Hearts} {Q-Clubs} {10-Clubs} and Buchanan quickly checked followed by a Mercier check. The turn was the {10-Spades} and again Buchanan quickly checked and Mercier bet 13,000. Action back to Buchanan and he clicked it back to 26,000. Mercier questionned the bet amount before making the call. The river was the {2-Spades} and Buchanan bet 65,000 and Mercier folded.

Showdown

Buchanan{J-Hearts} {9-Diamonds}

Mercier was down to chip dust.
