Portano Draws to a Queen

Desmond Portano

2-7 Triple Draw

Desmond Portano raised to open the pot, and Brent Hanks announced the reraise to 75,000. Portano called. Both men took one card on the first draw, and Portano check-called a bet.

Portano checked in the dark as they each took one more card, and Hanks checked it back. That action repeated on the last round with Portano dark checking and Hanks checking it, too. Portano showed up [qx7x5x4x3], and Hanks had to sweat it. He was working with {8-}{4-}{3-}{2-}, and he squeezed his last card tight. "Wish me luck," he said, then flipped over an {A-}. That's no good, and Portano's queen-low earns him the pot.
