Event #17: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em

DeWitt Collects Big Pot...Eventually


Jason DeWitt raised it up from under the gun to 240,000 with Peter Gilmore making the call on the button.

The flop of {K-Hearts}{K-Clubs}{9-Hearts} was checked by both players before the {7-Diamonds} hit the turn. DeWitt checked and Gilmore fired 250,000. After a few moments of deliberation DeWitt announced a check-raise to 625,000. Gilmore made the call as a silence fell across the crowd as a massive pot was brewing.

The river put an {A-Diamonds} out there to add to the suspense. Again DeWitt sat quietly for a good minute or two before firing 775,000. Now it was Gilmore's turn in the tank, and according to the clock, this hand had already taken eight minutes until this point.

Gilmore eventually let it go and DeWitt takes the first pot of the new level. Gilmore is down to 1.37 million with DeWitt up to 3.5 million
