Froehlich Figures It Out

Eric Froehlich who was down early in his match against Ronald Crabtree but recently he retook the lead. Froehlich started a recent hand by putting his opponent all in from the big blind. After a few minutes Crabtree opted to call and put himself at risk.

Froehlich: {A-Hearts}{7-Hearts}
Crabtree: {Q-Spades}{K-Spades}

With a {8-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{10-Diamonds} flop it looked like this match would be lasting a bit longer. A {J-Hearts} on the turn also gave credit to this theory, but a {K-Clubs} on the river sealed the deal in Froehlich's favor. Both players shook hands, but it appeared as if Crabtree didn't know he lost. Having not seen the Froehlich's straight he thought he had doubled up, after quickly being corrected Crabtree was sent on his merry way.
