Ace on the River

• Level 6: 200-400, 50 ante

“Ace on the River” may be the title of Barry Greenstein’s seminal poker book, but it also seems to be the theme of Emmanuel Ravelo’s last few levels.

Recently he got the last of his chips in with {q-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}. The board ran out {q-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{k-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{a-Hearts} to deliver him the straight and prompt an incredulous opponent to remark, “Three times he’s had an ace on the river to survive.”

Hey, if it’s good enough for Barry.
