Event #36: $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Beemen Keeps on Keeping on

Adam Richardson made it 45,000 to go from the cutoff with both Mick Carlson in the small blind and Timothy Breeman in the big blind calling.

The flop came {3-Spades}{5-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} and both blinds checked to Richardson who bet 110,000 into the pot. Carlson made the call but then Beeman announced he was raising to 375,000. Richardson was pretty quick to fold with Carlson taking a minute to lay his hand down.

Once all the cards were mucked, Beeman flipped over {3-}{3-} for a flopped set. "Good fold, Mick," shouted some of Carlson's friends from the rail.
