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

Dirksen Trips Leman


Dustin Dirksen limped in from the small blind and Reagan Leman checked out of the big. The flop fell {9-Spades}{8-Spades}{k-Hearts} and Dirksen led for 15,000. Leman called.

The turn brought the {5-Hearts} and Dirksen quickly fired 30,000. Leman again called.

As soon as the {k-Clubs} hit the felt on the river, Dirksen announced, "Forty (thousand)."

Leman slipped a yellow T1,000 chip on his cards and sat back in his chair. He cut out enough chips to make the call and painstakingly tossed them forward.

"King," Dirksen said opening {k-Spades}{2-Diamonds}.

Leman mucked, and his stack slipped to 640,000 chips. Dirksen is up to 684,000.
