Event #39: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout

Leman Doesn't Get Crazy With Eights


It folded around to Dustin Dirksen in the small blind who casually tossed out a raise to 20,000. Reagan Leman looked at Dirksen. "I better be careful," he said as he made the call. "You're running hot." Dirksen grinned in response.

The flop came {K-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{3-Hearts} and Dirksen quickly bet 40,000. Leman laughed and folded his pocket eights face up. Dirksen just nodded. "I hit that flop extremely hard," he assured Leman, who continued to chuckle.

Both players have had good starts to their Day 3, perhaps encouraging their blind-vs.-blind banter. Dirksen has 665,000 at the moment, and Leman 595,000.

(Incidentally, Steven Kelly was moved over to Table 376 to balance the tables following Tran's elimination, and where he is sitting in between Justin Scott and Dirksen.)
