Athanasios Polychronopoulos Probably Needed the Six

Level 14: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante

A player in middle position raises to 4,300, Champions Club member Matthew Waxman calls on the button, and Athanasios Polychronopoulos defends from the big blind. 

The flop comes KspadeQdiamond5spade and Polychronopoulos checks. The initial raiser bets 6,500 and both Waxman and Polychronopoulos call.

The turn brings the 4heart and all three players check. The river is the 6diamond and Polychronopoulos bets out 17,800. The player in middle position calls and Waxman folds.

Polychronopoulos turns over Kheart6club for a rivered two pair, the other players muck, and Polychronopoulos takes the pot.

"I might've needed that six," Polychronopoulos says as he stacks his chips.

"You definitely needed that six," his opponent retorts.
