2 Nut Straights Get Rivered

$2000 +$200 Deep Stack No Limit Hold'em
Championship Event Day 3

If Joshua Hakakian makes the final table, he'll be thanking the J, while Dean Potashner and Tyng Low are wondering how they both lose a hand after flopping the nuts.

All three players go to the flop for 30k and the board is J 10 A.

Low leads out for 15k, Potashner calls and Hakakian shoves all-in for 167 more. Low makes the call, Potashner reshoves for 650k more and Low snap calls with less.

Hakakian: J 10♠ (two pairs)
Low: K Q (nut straight)
Potashner: K Q (nut straight)

Turn: 4
River: J (Hakakian full house)

Hakakian scoops the pot with a 4 outer, taking his stack to 650k, as Low and Potashner are left shaking their heads.
