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

Trickett Wins Another Tense Pot

Sam Trickett

Sam Trickett raised to 240,000 and Jason DeWitt made the call in the big blind. They both checked the {7-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} flop and the {a-Spades} hit the turn. DeWitt checked again and Trickett fired 375,000.

DeWitt thought for a few moments before reaching for chips with both hands and sliding out 875,000 to declare a raise. Trickett's turn in the tank but he found a call as we had a big pot on our hands.

The river was the {5-Clubs} and DeWitt asked for a count of his opponent's stack before another long pause. He eventually checked and Trickett quickly checked behind showing {A-Clubs}{6-Spades}. It was the best hand as the rail roared in delight!
