Big Nuts Bets by Marsel Backa #fallshowdown2014

11:32 pm

On the turn card, Marsel Backa takes the value out of his opponents 20k value bet by re-raising him a full 100k!

The 6♦6♥J♥5♠  board only made it to the turn card when Marsel’s monster raise scares off the 1 seat and secures him the 85k pot!

He then shows the A♥Q♥ nut flush draw that didn’t even need to connect for the win!
