Event #36: $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Recipe For Tilt

Michael Gracz finished the last level on a high note. He was in the big blind and had called a raise to 850 from the player in the cutoff. Gracz checked when the flop came {j-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}, but the cutoff bet 1,100. At that point Gracz three-bet to 2,600 and the cutoff four-bet to 8,000. Not to be outdone, Gracz shoved for around 26,000 and the cutoff called.

Expecting a couple of monsters?

Gracz: {6-Hearts}{4-Hearts}
Cutoff: {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}

Gracz was ahead, but was a statistical underdog heading into the turn. The turn was the {10-Clubs}, giving the cutoff even more outs, none of which came when the river fell {8-Spades}.

The double up allowed Gracz to climb to 54,000 chips.
