Is there no stopping Oliver Speidel? Clearly not, as the five other players in this pot found out. Benjie Lim opened for 650 from UTG and was called by most of the table, including Speidel in the small blind with Pocket Fives.
The flop sends out 6♣ 5♣ 4♠ and Speidel leads out for 2500 with his set, likely because of the scary draw board. The lojack is the only player to meet him in the middle and the dealer then tables the 3♦.
Speidel fires another barrel and his opponent calls the 4500. On the river 9♥ Speidel checks and, with a four-card straight out there, is fortunately not put to a decision when his opponent checks behind.
Speidel shows his set of fives and it’s enough to take the pot. He now has 85,000 behind, which seems ever growing.
