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

Scott's Struggle Continues


Justin Scott returned from the dinner break as the table's short stack and during our first half-hour had moved all-in more than a half-dozen times without getting a caller. Then came a hand in which he opened once again with an all-in raise from the cutoff for 185,000. This time he got a caller in Reagan Leman from the big blind.

Leman {A-Spades}{2-Diamonds}
Scott {A-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}

The flop came {K-Spades}{7-Clubs}{4-Clubs} and turn {4-Diamonds}, and it looked like Scott may be getting a needed double up. But the river was the {A-Hearts}, pairing both players' aces and making for a chopped pot.

Leman sits with 825,000 at the moment, and Scott remains the table's shortest stack with about 200,000.
